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

Meanwhile, Bridget has put it all on ice while she focuses on her high-flying career and on finding Mr Right. And all Miles wants is to be able to afford a property in Zone 4 – oblivious to the fact that, in a different kind of currency, he’s actually the richest of them all…

Genesis Inc. explores the final frontier of twenty-first-century capitalism: the privatisation of human reproduction.

Jemma Kennedy's explosively funny 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.

Genesis Inc. premiered at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 2018, in a production directed by Laurie Sansom.

'Cyclist are you? Good for the lungs, less so for the sperm. Try fast walking instead.'

Press Quotes

'Smart, funny, complex'

Financial Times

'Kennedy's imaginative, consistently entertaining tragicomedy is stuffed with ideas... what starts out as a superior sitcom becomes richer and darker as it progresses… handled with considerable dexterity and an impressive command of theatrical storytelling'
