By Sarah Treem

Directed by Austin Pendleton

Austin Pendleton directs Sarah Treem’s rapid-fire joust between two scientists, both women, one older, one younger. A scholarly debate on the purposes – not the how but the why - of female reproductive processes escalates into an all-in, life-changing clash around power and age, sex and gender, and the hard choices faced by women of every generation.


A Golden Globe Award-winning writer, Treem turns a domestic drama into biological warfare as a pair of academics face off in this compelling, intellectually searing play about science, family, and survival of the fittest.

Sheen Center, 18 Bleeker Street in NoHo, NYC
