Single Carrot Theatre is excited to present the next show of Season X: this dark comedy uses humor and hi-jinks to illuminate the deeper issues at the heart of the story.  Lauren Yee's Samsara takes us on a journey: this heartfelt and hilarious play is not only a story of what to expect when you're expecting someone else's child, but a modern take on colonialism and the ethics of outsourcing surrogacy.

Samsara is a fresh story by a young playwright, and a regional premiere to boot! Grab a ticket to see for yourself!

Katie and Craig want a baby.  Well, Katie wants a baby, and Craig wants what Katie wants. When Craig goes to India to be with their surrogate, Suraiya, flying-phobic Katie is left alone, plagued by visions of all that could go wrong and a mysterious, seductive Frenchman.  Suraiya, an aspiring doctor with secrets of her own, tries to remain cool and aloof while conversing with the life growing inside of her, a curious young man who has named himself Amit. Their lives flow together and intertwine in the cycle of life, death and rebirth known as samsara.
