Babelby Jacqueline Goldfinger
In this version of the future, expectant parents learn within the first few weeks of pregnancy which traits their child will have and what behaviors it is likely to exhibit.
This intriguing new play follows the extreme lengths two couples go in order to have a baby. Babel probes the world of modern eugenics, explores the societal value of a baby, and asks us what we are willing to risk for love. A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere.
Funny, Terrifying, and Gutsy
