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

2020. There’s a global pregnancy epidemic, and only Margaret gives birth — to a very unusual baby. She and her baby are quarantined in the North, which is 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.

Based in Calgary, Downstage produces Canadian theatre that creates meaningful conversation around social issues. With a focus on new work created by local artists, we offer artistic experiences that are entertaining, inventive, thought-provoking and highly relevant to your everyday life.

What they're saying
