"Reborning progressively unveils what it means to be an artist in the 21st century... a pleasantly disquieting ride."
"There’s perversity in the heroine’s patience, fever in her precision, vulnerability in anger, truth in isolation. Spinning out is palpable."
"Triolo is enchanting to watch."
"Rickards' performance is incredibly captivating... She has tremendous chemistry with Piaskowski."
"Piaskowski [as Daizy] brings to the character an attractively offhand manner and wry sense of humor."
"Dealing with motherhood, grief, and guilt, this play by Zayd Dohrn is at its best when it openly flirts with horror."
"Rickards dares to go almost feral - harsh, bitter, and terrified of parenthood."
Art and life become disturbingly interchangeable when a sculptor of baby dolls meets a woman desperate to recreate the past.
Kelly is a Reborning artist, she creates lifelike dolls. These dolls are often based on real babies – sometimes for collectors, other times for mothers dealing with the loss of their infants. Kelly lives with her boyfriend Daizy who is a sculptor of a different variety.
Things take a dramatic turn for them both when new client Emily commissions baby doll Eva. The dark comedy that ensues takes an unsettling look at love, loss, trauma, and the power of creation.
