An award-winning play has its Wyoming premier in Laramie. Relative Theatrics presents Madeleine George's play The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence at Laramie's Gryphon Theater through November 16.

The work won an Outer Critics Circle Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2013. As George told Wyoming Public Radio's Megan Feighery, the inspiration came from the most unlikely of places.
