Higher Education

What not to expect when you're expecting! Based on the true story of Jorge Odón and the birthing device he invented in his garage, Chiara Atik's comedy spans time and space in an effort to grapple with the mystery and the miracle of maternity.

Rosalind Ayres directs Ana Ortiz (Hulu's Love, Victor; Ugly Betty; Devious Maids), Herbert Sigüenza (Culture Clash), and Alma Martinez (Gentefied, The Terror) in the L.A. Theatre Works recording, and is part of L.A. Theatre Works' Relativity Series of science-themed plays, with lead funding provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world. Also in the cast are Lucy DeVito, who was in the original cast of Bump, as well as Anna Lyse Erikson, Anna Mathias, Andre Sogliuzzo, Devon Sorvari, Inger Tudor, and Moira Quirk.

According to The New York Times, "In centuries-spanning 'Bump,' it's always Labor Day... If you are pregnant, if you have been pregnant, if you have resulted from a pregnancy, you will probably find [Bump] very funny... If you are a mother, "Bump" is guaranteed to give you flashbacks as to how you became one."

Special virtual extras soon to be announced.
