Recipient of the 2014 Theater Masters/Aspen Institute Visionary Playwright Award, nominated for the L. Arnold Weissberger Award and a finalist for the Verity Bargate Award. A contemporary drama set in Ireland with lashings of dark comedy. The Seedbed dramatises how the seed of a single thought passes from a mother to her daughter, privately grows into an obsession in the daughter's mind and is then transferred to her father where it takes on a baroque life of its own in his imagination. As the thought travels from one family member to the next in a dangerous game of psychological whispers, they each go off on their own private psychological bender that ends up having disastrous consequences for everyone in the family.
