Presented as a dramatic reading as part of the Advance Theatre New Works by Diverse Women, Gametes provides examples of the constant struggles women of today's society face with respect to gender roles and equality. How concepts of achievement and fulfillment become blurred between internal drive and external expectations. As two friends work their way through some shocking news, past memories present themselves as a sort of support or construct of their current views and opinions. Can a lifelong friendship overcome differing opinions as well as an unspoken truth? Edgy and mesmerizing, this translated script of an award winning French original, deserves the opportunity to be performed as a full production thanks to the performers entertaining presentation of the material considering their limited time with the script.
