IVF isn’t foolproof and IUDs aren’t failsafe. iPhones come with ovulation apps and being married doesn’t mean you have to breed. Seed follows four women as they try to get pregnant, stay pregnant or become un-pregnant – the dilemmas of modern reproduction.
Seed by Elisabeth Easther was the winner of the 2014 Adam New Zealand Play Award, and was described by the award judges as “highly entertaining, funny and sophisticated”.
Seed is about the horror some women experience when they’re pregnant, even while in loving relationships, and the pain some women feel when they’re not – and the hope that a baby can cement the bond with their partner in a way a ring, a house or a promise just don’t.
Seed is a drama that’ll have you laughing till tears run down your face, and a comedy that’ll make you cry and it’s all about us.
