Two Couples. Two medical procedures. Two life-changing choices.

...What truth lies in a spot of blood?

Game Theory is a new double-bill of plays exploring the emotions and ethics surrounding the controversial medical practices of hymenoplasty and genomic sequencing.


“Society is full of deceptions. You tell me how mine is worse than all the others.”

When Halima, the woman he first loved, comes to him seeking a hymen reconstruction ahead of her wedding to another man, a successful cosmetic surgeon puts his career and his happiness on the line in this impassioned debate on the value of virginity across gender and cultural divides.   

“How is it the best life we can give him if we know his death sentence from
the start?”

Charlie and Emma have just welcomed their son into the world, and must immediately grapple with whether or not to have their newborn’s genome sequenced. In a world where technology has blurred the lines between what is public and private, a faultline quickly emerges between two people with very different conceptions of what it means to love and care for another.

“It’s a sign of a well crafted piece of theatre that characters ignite an emotional response in their audience and the issues of Odessa Celt’s play are provocative to say the least.” - The Stage’s Paul Vale on Membrane at the Lost Theatre One Act Festival 2013
