IVF isn’t fool proof and IUDs aren’t failsafe. iPhones come with ovulation apps and being married doesn’t mean you have to breed. Seed follows four women as they try to get pregnant, stay pregnant or become un-pregnant - the dilemmas of modern reproduction.
Seed is about the horror some woman experience to learn they’re pregnant, even while in loving relationships, and about fancy fertility clinics that prey on people’s primal urge to replicate, in the hope of cementing the bond with their partner in a way a ring, a house or a promise just don’t.
A truly contemporary, hilarious and smart look at modern reproduction and female friendship, Seed is a drama that’ll make you laugh, or it’s a comedy that’ll make you cry.
