When: Wednesday, Jul 5, 2017 | 7:30 PM
Marianne has made her living (and her happiness) as a surrogate mother for families looking to conceive. But when she is told by her agency that after four pregnancies they have to let her go, a heartbroken Marianne reconnects with an old flame and finds herself pregnant again… this time by accident. Rather than tell the father, she seizes the opportunity to be a surrogate once again. This comedic new play reading explores the lengths people go to get the attention they need.
