New York Magazine called the show’s original Lincoln Center Theater production "Sharp and stirring, incisive and breathtakingly humane." 

Brief Synopsis: Set in a future where the surface of the Earth is uninhabitable, humans now live underground where fertility is closely regulated and the world above is simulated via an implant. Anna and Oliver, born several generations after the move underground, have one final hope of having a baby. The production is directed by Brien Lang, Resident Artist of the Wilbury Theatre Group, in Providence, R.I.
