What makes one a parent? Love, genetics, giving birth? This question lies at the center of Carl Djerassi's newest play Taboos. Retuning to his scientific roots, Djerassi explores the other side of planned parenthood. When a lesbian couple and an infertile fundamentalist Christian couple each look to have a child, more then biology gets in the way of the idea of the "perfect family." Taboos explores the unexpected, and often messy, results that arise when emotions and science collide.
