Winner of the 2015 Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding Original Script
Inside the Seed is a contemporary version of Oedipus Rex reimagined as a darkly comic political thriller.
Mirroring controversial real-life scientific and corporate controversies, Inside the Seed concerns a once-brilliant scientist who made a startling discovery: a bio-engineered form of rice that could save an overpopulated world on the brink of catastrophic famine. The play examines how good, smart, well-intentioned individuals are drawn into, and corrupted by, complex institutional systems, be they corporate, military, or governmental.
Cast of 5 men and 4 women.
