Cyclist are you? Good for the lungs, less so for the sperm. Try fast walking instead.


Serena and Jeff have one last chance to conceive: Genesis Incorporated, whose glowing testimonials and bespoke treatments surely justify a final roll of the dice.

Meanwhile, Bridget has put it all on ice while she focuses on her high-flying career and on finding Mr Right. And all Miles wants is to be able to afford a property in Zone 4—oblivious to the fact that, in a different kind of currency, he’s actually the richest of them all…

Genesis Inc. explores the final frontier of twenty-first-century capitalism: the privatisation of human reproduction.

Jemma Kennedy’s explosively funny new comedy takes a closer look at the lengths to which people will go to defy biology – and at the moral compass of an industry that trades on fear and hope. It premiered at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 2018, in a production directed by Laurie Sansom.


"Smart, funny, complex. " —Financial Times

"Kennedy's imaginative, consistently entertaining tragicomedy is stuffed with ideas. .. what starts out as a superior sitcom becomes richer and darker as it progresses… handled with considerable dexterity and an impressive command of theatrical storytelling. " —WhatsOnStage
