An out of place couple await the arrival of a well to do couple in an elite restaurant. The wealthy couple have paid the other for a surrogate conception and tests now show that the fetus is afflicted with Downs' syndrome. The well to do couple want to pay to have the baby aborted. The surrogate couple adamantly refuse. "What will we do now?", asks the well to do woman. Well, there are courts of law, and so forth. "No, she says; I mean about our baby?" Absolutely riveting play.
Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 16th Series.
