Designer Genes
Designer Genes
Co-Winner: Tail Eats Snake: An Evening of One Acts Festival, The Side Project, Chicago

Co-Winner: Moving Arts 11th Annual Premiere One-Act Festival, Los Angeles
By Kent R. Brown

Cast: 1m., 2w. It is the not-too-distant future. Dolly the sheep is old news. Gene enhancement is all the rage. Seven years ago, Wesley and Marian's son, beset with a multitude of inherited maladies, died a tragic death. Vowing they would never again have a natural child, they have contacted Designer Genes, Inc., to create the perfect son who will bring them only happiness and joy. Alice Fleming, the company rep for Designer Genes, Inc., has arrived with her sample cases to make her pitch-golden hair and blue eyes, the flexibility of a gymnast, the mathematical computation skill of an Einstein-whatever they wish. But there have been glitches along the road to genetic bliss. Some experimental subjects exhibited bizarre behavior, sometimes aggressive, sometimes…well, unnatural in the worst sense of the word. Designer Genes, Inc., cannot guarantee their work. In fact, there are no guarantees of any kind. The play explores the ethics and moralities involved when science comingles with nature in an effort to play God. Single int. set. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
