“...Clever...”

“...I was immediately impressed by Dietz's intelligence, humor, and humanity.”
–Timothy Ruppert, Playwright

This comedy of “speculative fiction” explores inter-gender politics in a time when the world order we know is replaced by a “matriarchal” society.

In this time, procreation has become a highly organized business with forms to file, quotas to meet, and successful “mergers” absolutely essential. It’s perceived as the perfect system; a vast improvement over “the old way.” But is it really?

One so-called “breeder,” a by-the-book young man named Brett, will be left to wonder when he is called to the estate of the somewhat eccentric Marcy Anne Hess one morning for what he assumes will be a routine breeding “session.”

What he will discover upon his arrival is anything but routine!
