Larvae A New Play by Kelsey Torstveit
In this Absurdist rendering of the Adam and Eve story, two larvae have just hatched from a perfect pearly-white egg. Their first moments are spent with simple joys: the sound of a heartbeat, the sun, the discovery of legs. But no matter the momentary gratitude, appetites creep in, secrets creep out, and compromise is a bird of prey. The Man needs to eat, and soon. The Woman needs to make a baby, her body keeps telling her so. Together the larvae learn the mysteries of food, sex, and fear, as they take on the ultimate unknown on the other side of the chrysalis: the future.
