A Nativity Play (The Sperm and the Egg)
Kate Hawkins & Eloise Fornieles
A Nativity Play examines the gendered language of insemination and how the picture of egg and sperm drawn in popular as well as scientific accounts of reproductive biology relies on stereotypes central to our cultural definitions of male and female. The play is based on the anthropologist Emily Martin’s paper, the "The Egg and the Sperm: How Science has Constructed a Romance based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles".
