Unit Set/Multiple Settings

There is no room for delicacy or modesty when Tom, on the brink of his fortieth birthday, learns that he and his wife's childless condition is a result of his low sperm count. Determined to have a child, and haunted by the dinosaurs he visits at the Museum of Natural History, Tom pursues the dream of fatherhood through the expensive and painful avenues of modern medicine. The situation is hard on his masculinity and his marriage, and the solutions become increasingly bizarre. Should Tom opt for surgery, insulated diapers, or the good, old-fashioned remedy offered by his best friend who is perfectly capable and willing to impregnate Tom's wife? The play, narrated by the character of Tom, is never self-pitying and always humorous. It treats a very modern human dilemma with wit and compassion.
Originally staged at Playwrights Horizons, this play is the story of a forty-year-old man who discovers it's his fault that he and his wife can't have a baby. The ensuing comedy, with overpaid doctors, Spartan nurses and very large needles, is wildly funny and very moving. "The play is…very funny and should score big with baby-boomers." —Variety. "One would not have thought so much humor could be derived from so indelicate a subject." —NY Times.
