Based on the true story of renowned social psychologist Stanley Milgram, “Please Continue” recounts the infamous obedience experiments at Yale in the 1960s. In that study, participants were asked to administer strong electric shocks to a subject who gave the wrong answer to a question, not knowing that the shocks were fake, and they were the real subject of the study. The play examines how the experiments gave insight into the nature of authoritarianism and individual morality.

Includes an interview about science and ethics with Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, a Professor of Education at the Rossier School of Education, a Professor of Psychology at the Brain and Creativity Institute, and a member of the Neuroscience Graduate Program Faculty at the University of Southern California.

Please Continue is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Major funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

Directed by Rosalind Ayres.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With admirable vocal naturalism and almost maddening nonchalance, Matthew Wolf, Will Brittain, and other members of an ensemble cast bring to life the true story of a series of obedience/conformity experiments performed upon students at Yale University in the early 1960s. The repeated phrase ‘Please continue’ takes on an eerily sinister quality as the professor and graduate student prod their subjects to keep on administering electric shocks—no matter their apprehension—when participating students answered questions incorrectly. (The shocks were faked, as were the students’ reactions.) The dialogue is realistic, chilling, and thought provoking as moral questions about authority, human dignity, and individual freedom are grappled with by the entire ensemble of narrators. The play makes a fine addition to LA Theatre Works’ Relativity Series, which focuses on plays with a science theme.”
