A World Premiere Futuristic Satire!

For Both Resting and Breeding is set in the year 2150 where humans have become gender-neutral and use the pronoun ‘Ish’ to identify themselves. The play centers around two historians, ISH56 and ISH62, who want to transform an old residence, built in 1999, into a living museum commemorating Millennials for the upcoming sesquicentennial. As the museum is being created, members of the group become too enamoured with their gendered counterparts and eventually start to re-enact the dangerous behaviours of their ancestors.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to try on the past. That is how we challenge history.
– ISH56, Character

What might a world without gender look like? And how might we be remember a century-and-a-half from now? The subterranean world of this play lies at the intersection of these two big questions.
– Adam Meisner, Playwright
