Featuring irresponsible politicians who listen to lobbyists instead of constituents, Eden tells about a world in the not-too-distant future where child-bearing and rearing are no longer fashionable. The corrupt government functions in collusion with the industry that manufactures Genofacts—machine-produced children who can be purchased as well-trained, properly programmed 18-year-olds. In a dramatically frightening manner, McDonough uses his perceptive understanding of secret human emotions to look at where our civilization is headed with the genetic engineering and experimentation taking place today. With a playing time of about 60 minutes, Eden may provide a full-length program or it may combine with a shorter play such as Fables or Asylum. Like most of McDonough's works, Eden is a superior contest play. The cast's aim is to maintain an uninterrupted flow without the intrusion of full blackouts or scene curtains.
