LITTLE EGG, BIG WORLD
BY RACHEL LEIGHSON
FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 8 PM
As two sides of one life, Little Egg and Grown Uterus fight to reconcile themselves as both a donor child and an egg donor. Along the way, they sort through a jumble of thoughts with a host of real and imagined characters of life from parents, to geneticists, to google itself. As Little Egg searches for her father and Grown Uterus tries to come to terms with anonymous donation, the two navigate through trials of identity, abandonment, betrayal, curiosity, love, and discovery. A story of family and reproductive justice.
