2 Male 2 Female

Here is a poetic and all too human drama about a thirtyish couple who desperately want a child. With documentary like brutality, mordant humor, and graphic realism, their efforts to achieve what comes naturally to most couples are portrayed

From the ashes of unfulfilled dreams and bitter experience, they summon the strength and love to go on

"Probably the most important play of the season. . . . It is entertaining, it is funny, it is bitter, and it is handsomely poetic" ~ N.Y. Times

"Astonishing!" ~ Village Voice
