Emily Mann tackles relationships in ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ and ‘Scenes from a Marriage’

"I’ve wanted to do Antony and Cleopatra nearly all my adult life…My first professional job was being Tony Richards’ assistant in London. I was only 19 when he directed Vanessa Redgrave in her first Cleopatra… I was madly in love with the play, and everything I learned that summer is imprinted." - Antony & Cleopatra Director Emily Mann

Princeton University researchers offer a new theory that an early-life injury to the cerebellum disrupts the brain’s processing of external and internal information and leads to “developmental diaschisis,” wherein a loss of function in one brain region leads to problems in another. Applied to autism, cerebellar injury could hinder how other areas of the brain interpret external stimuli and organize internal processes. Based on a review of existing research, the researchers found that a cerebellar injury at birth can make a person 36 times more likely to score highly on autism screening tests, and is the largest un-inherited risk (above).
