“ “Babel is a timely view into a future world where choice and reproductive technology have progressed to eugenics. The play made me laugh out loud and also made me cry. It tracks the human journey of partnerships, trying to conceive, and dealing with genetic discrepancies with heart, humor and caution. The warning of Babel rings out clear and true: "humans please do not forget about the essential messiness, the imperfection as it were, of being human". The script integrates the idea of future technologies based on current human ideals in a smart and theatrical way. A great ride!
