Productions:

Northern Stage – White River Junction, VT – January 27-February 13, 2016; New Jersey Repertory Company – Long Branch, NJ – October 20-November 20, 2016

Synopsis: 

Sloane Hudson, a rich, beautiful recent Ivy League graduate and product of the campus hook up culture and frat basement pong tournaments, doesn't believe in love or marriage. She does believe in babies and wants one soon so her tummy can bounce back and she can still wear a bikini. The problem is she needs a sperm donor who passes muster. Enter Brandon, who's got the right stats but the wrong attitude. Brandon has enough on his plate already and lives with brother Doug, the infamous "De-Fenestrator" who just fell in love with Katerina, the hooker from the Ukraine. Cabbage soup, a rare baseball card and a lizard named Pogo all play a part in this romantic comedy for cynical times.
