EXTREMOPHILES

Written and Performed by Georgina Beaty | Directed by Ellen Close

Production Design by Caitlin r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett

2020. Post-Global Warming. There’s a global pregnancy epidemic, and only Margaret gives birth — to a very unusual baby. She and her baby are quarantined in the North which is now a desert. April, an eager anthropologist, arrives to chronicle their struggle to survive and becomes more entangled than she anticipated. In this unsettling and eerily funny solo piece, Georgina Beaty creates a strange and beautiful dystopia to evoke unsettling truths about where our planet may be headed.
