Cyclist are you? Good for the lungs, less so for the sperm. Try fast walking instead Serena and Jeff have one last chance: Genesis Incorporated, whose glowing testimonials and bespoke treatments surely justify a final roll of the dice. Meanwhile, Bridget has put her future literally on ice while she focuses on her high-flying career and on finding Mr Right.

And all Miles wants is a steady salary so he can buy a property in Zone 4 – oblivious to the fact that, in a different kind of currency, he’s actually the richest of them all… Jemma Kennedy spins a blisteringly entertaining and multifaceted tale of the final frontier of 21st century capitalism: the privatisation of human reproduction. This richly imaginative, topical, and 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.

Hampstead Theatre is proud to present Jemma Kennedy’s breakthrough play. Previous plays include Second Person Narrative (Tonic Theatre commission as part of the Play for Platform Series), The Gift (New Vic Theatre) and Don’t Feed the Animals (National Theatre Connections).

Laurie Sansom directs following his critically acclaimed historical trilogy The James Plays (National Theatre) and The Driver’s Seat (National Theatre of Scotland). Genesis Inc. is a work of fiction and any similarity to any real person or organisation is purely coincidental.

View Seating Plan

We have a modern auditorium which has been designed to be as flexible as possible in both staging and seating configurations.

The seating capacity can range up to 325, in a variety of formats. There are two main seating areas: Ground Floor (stalls) and Upstairs (circle). On the Ground Floor there is also a mezzanine level, the back row of which are stool seats: higher seats complete with footrests.

Movable seating blocks also allow for the auditorium to be changed from a more traditional end-on configuration with a raised stage, to thrust or traverse layouts where the audience is level with the performance area.

The forestage can be raised, or lowered to allow for an orchestra pit. The main section of stage can also be raised or lowered to change the relationship between performers and audience or to create a rake on stage, and contains removable sections for creating traps. The auditorium is fully air-conditioned.
