Synopsis


"Cyclist are you?


Good for the lungs, less so for the sperm.


Try fast walking instead."


Serena and Jeff have one last chance: Genesis Incorporated, whose glowing testimonials and bespoke treatments surely justify a final roll of the dice.


Meanwhile, Bridget has put her future literally on ice while she focuses on her high-flying career and on finding Mr Right.


And all Miles wants is a steady salary so he can buy a property in Zone 4 - oblivious to the fact that, in a different kind of currency, he's actually the richest of them all …


Jemma Kennedy spins a blisteringly entertaining and multifaceted tale of the final frontier of 21st century capitalism: the privatisation of human reproduction.


This richly imaginative, topical, and explosively funny new comedy takes a closer look at the lengths to which people will go to defy biology - and at the moral compass of an industry that trades on fear and hope.
