Perfect at the PlayGround Zoom Fest!
Originally developed by PlayGround and further developed through Laguna Playhouse and UC Davis’ Catalyst: A Theatre Think Tank, my play, Perfect, is a dive into the brave new world of genetic engineering. Three interwoven stories, six actors, and ten characters explore the boundless desire for flawless children and the impossibility of objectively defining what that means. A cell biologist and her brilliant, wheelchair-using son discover their research is being used to indiscriminately clean disabilities from the human genome. An athlete, genetically engineered for speed and strength, is driven by his father to be a star, despite his disinterest in athletics. And a young couple, paralyzed by the uncertainty that comes with natural conception, turns to an app to design the “perfect” child.
