The anthropologist saw me and thought, “I have discovered a new civilization.”

2020. There's a global pregnancy epidemic, and only Margaret gives birth - to a very unusual baby. They are quarantined in the far North, now a desert. April, an eager anthropologist, arrives to chronicle this unusual family’s struggle to survive and becomes more entangled than she ever anticipated.

In this unsettling and darkly funny new solo piece, playwright/performer Georgina Beaty has created a strange and beautiful dystopia to evoke unsettling truths about where our planet may be headed.
