P = Probability. P = Pregnant.
Human population has exceeded 7 billion.
Inspired by real life interviews, Maybe Baby follows the stories of three women, each on the road to conception. Bound to a state of perpetual waiting, the potential mothers struggle to grasp the unseen forces at play. Delving into chaos theory, infinity and zero as a cosmic womb, Maybe Baby uses divination and teapots to explore the relationship between choice, chance and children.

With a half dozen cheap teapots (“I’m a little teapot) they take on the weighty and conflicting to procreate in a world of 7 billion and growing. It has some extraordinary original music by Kate Kilbane, a cameo from a dog puppet that steals the show, and the choreography will make your mind swim.

Written and directed by Amy Sass, Ragged Wing Ensemble's performance of Maybe Baby offers an imaginative look at how random possibility affects a woman's chances of getting pregnant. Filled with wit and imaginatively staged with a series of teacups as props, Maybe Babymerges nursery rhymes and quantum theory into a fresh artistic vision that is at once singular and delightful.
The standout piece in Program Two is Amy Sass’s Maybe Baby, produced by Ragged Wing Ensemble and directed by the playwright. This piece, based on real life interviews, explores the efforts of several young couples trying to start a family in the midst of various challenges. It is funny, authentic, well written and does a superb job of incorporating dance and movement into its storytelling.
