1 Male 1 Female

This award winning, cerebral play is set in the future but is very much for our time

Driven underground by the "greenhouse" effect on the atmosphere, two people eke out an existence in a wary partnership - she is a "baby factory", he is genetically engineered to be a survivor

Through three scenes we observe their skirmishes, his denial of her reason for living and their coming to terms with her sickness

This bleak picture of what man is doing to the earth has a moving and hopeful ending - a baby cries in the darkness
