Expecting Isabel

By Lisa Loomer

Directed by Jeanne Leep

Presented by Krass

When Nick first suggests having a baby, Miranda finds every excuse to oppose him, but after the New York couple tries and fails to conceive, both grow consumed with the idea of starting a family. A tour through the fertility trade, the adoption industry, and their own families uncovers the emotional roller coaster that can come with trying to make a miracle.

Lisa Loomer, who co-wrote the screenplay for Girl, Interrupted, brings us a heart-wrenching comedy about trying to have a baby – by any means necessary.

1999 Winner of American Theatre Critics Association Steinberg New Play Award.
