Missing Socks, and a Line of Coke (or The Baby Fever Play)
By Rachel Lynett

Five Performances Only. Must Close April 14

What does "family planning" mean when you're queer? After a failed run at IVF, Naomi wonders what kind of mom she'll be and how. Will she have to steal a baby just to be a mom? Simultaneously, her cousin, Sabina, an ex-party girl who still thinks a good night ends at 3 am, doesn't think she'd made a good mom and has never wanted kids.  Too bad she's already pregnant. As the two try to make sense of what defines family, they both wonder: "What is motherhood anyway?"
