Synopsis


Today there are fewer women running big companies than CEOs named John.


John's smart furniture company, FLATT, is failing, but the new investor, also named John, thinks he has the answer: get all five of the female employees to construct the ultimate product for women.


Tasked with creating The Womb (™), Mary and her team start to question what it is they are building, and who they are really building it for.


Following the acclaimed Armadillo (Yard Theatre), writer Sarah Kosar brings her distinctive style to this strikingly original satire about patriarchal control through capitalism.
