TABOOS - West Coast Premiere. A play by Carl Djerassi

When Harriet met Sally, it was love at first sight – but then the complications began. What makes a parent? Love, genetics, giving birth? This question lies at the center of Carl Djerassi’s newest play TABOOS. Returning to his scientific roots, Djerassi explores the other side of planned parenthood.  When a lesbian couple and an infertile fundamentalist Christian couple each look to have a child, more then biology gets in the way of the idea of the “perfect family.” TABOOS is a disquieting comedy about keeping it all in the family as it explores the unexpected, and often messy, results that arise when emotions and science collide.

Following the February 12th 2 PM matinee performance there will be a panel discussion held in conjunction with the Stanford Medical School free and open to the public.
