New Play Explores Fertility Industry in India

Thanks to globalization and modern medicine, couples with infertility problems have more ways than ever to have a child. A new play at the Stage Left Theater in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood explores a newer, controversial option: international surrogacy. Here Where It’s Safe tells the story of Zach and Abbie, an American couple that choose to hire a surrogate parent in India, where it’s cheaper and easier. Margaret Lewis wrote Here Where It’s Safe, she says the idea for the play came from an unexpected place.

Here Where It’s Safe runs through April 3rd at the Stage Left Theater.
