An Immaculate Misconception

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: LA Theatre Works

Date: January 2004

Duration: 1 hours 54 minutes

Summary:

Dr. Melanie Laidlaw is a scientist developing the first use of ICSI, short for intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Her collaborator, Dr. Felix Frankenthaler, turns out to have his own ideas about how to implement their new procedure. The wild card is Melanie’s new lover, Menachem Dvir, a fellow scientist. This darkly comic menage-a-trois plays out not only in bedrooms and labs, but also in test tubes and under the microscope. A Brave New World indeed!

Includes an interview with Liza Mundy, a staff writer at the Washington Post and the author of ""Everything Conceivable: How Assisted Reproduction Is Changing Men, Women, and the World"".

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring:
Philip Casnoff as Menachem Dvir

Directed by Jenny Sullivan. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
