Shawn's most outlandish work to date, this disturbing and anomalously beautiful play explores the role of human beings in nature and the role of nature in human beings, sexuality being, as Shawn says, "nature's most obvious footprint in the human soul."

The play's central character is a doctor who figures out how to rejigger the metabolism of animals.

This discovery has unexpected consequences.

The play tells a story about the doctor, his wife, and his lovers that is also a story about the planet we live on.
