"I think being pregnant must feel like being a bowling ball. My neighbour is eight months along and every part of her body is swollen beyond recognition. She looks like a big fat bowling ball."
The project seems simple enough. Everyone (girls AND boys) wears a pregnancy belly to simulate what it feels like to be pregnant. Bonus points go to students who wear the belly 24/7. Easy, right? It's not as if it's real.
Lucy, who seems to live the ideal life, isn't finding the project so easy. She's a week late. And every day that passes is another day when life is far from ideal.
Each member of the ensemble gets a monologue in this issue-driven play. No statistics. No preaching. Just well-drawn characters and an engaging story.
