CAP21/THE SHOP presents A Womb With A View, by Debra Barsha (Radiant Baby). The show was developed at CAP21/THE SHOP as part of the Dorothy Strelsin New Works Series.
A Womb With A View explores a year in the life of a lesbian's journey through the process of alternative insemination. From collecting donor samples in her living room, to having her partner (a NYC police officer) inject her with fertility drugs, to her day-to-day job as a 4th grade theatre teacher in a Brooklyn private school, this primal rush to beat the biological clock is not your ordinary view of conception. As one fashion conscious 5-year-old put it, "all you need to have a baby is an egg and a perm." Debra Barsha writes and stars in this inventive, uproarious piece filled with storytelling and song. CAP21's Executive Artistic Director Frank Ventura directs.
