Little Me; or The Fertility Play is a cute zygote of a piece that explores genetic engineering via an emotional, high stakes interrogation of a husband in Sperm Bank of the Future, eager to impregnate his wife. If a woman could make a designer baby with her fantasy man, rather than her husband, would she? As Ernest and his wife’s male fantasy Ivan compete, so do their spermatozoa. In the end, what’s more perfect: engineering a baby to have the perfect genes or making an imperfect baby whose imperfections make him or her perfectly part of the family?
Produced by Amios Theater Company's Shotz at Under St. Marks, NYC.
The Shotz Process:
Called a "theatrical time bomb" by The New York Times, 6 playwrights get a week to write a short play based around 3 conditions and a theme. A crack team of actors and directors is assembled to put them up. They get a week of rehearsal and it’s go time.
