Natural Selection

Paul Jenkins
Fantastical, hysterical first play about incompetent Welsh terrorists, archaeology and designer babies.

Vlad and Joseph are amateur Welsh terrorists dedicated to keeping West Anglia racially pure. Their sister Mash aids the cause by luring men back to their house whereupon they are drugged and robbed. Then Joseph unearths a previously unknown hominid and their backwater becomes the centre of the world, as it is invaded by unhinged scientists. Add in a crucial plot strand about a ‘designer baby’ and some errant DNA, and everything escalates towards an alarming and hysterical finale.

Full of good jokes and exhilarating flights of fancy, Natural Selection offers a fantastic, hilarious and disturbing vision of a near future that is almost plausible.
