2020. There’s a global pregnancy epidemic, and only Margaret gives birth – to a very unusual baby. They are quarantined in the far North, now a desert. April, an eager young anthropologist arrives to chronicle this emerging society of two and becomes more entangled than she ever anticipated.

In this darkly funny new solo piece, playwright/performer Georgina Beaty has created a strange and beautiful world that evokes unsettling truths about where we may be headed.

“Everything I’d hoped. Smart and funny and caring and deeply theatrical. Amazing good work.”
– Jacob Zimmer, Nakai Theatre
