Drama On One’s ‘What Is Life?’ season continued with the third of four plays inspired by the world of science, marking the 70th anniversary, this year, of the ‘What Is Life?’ lecture series in Dublin by Erwin Schrödinger, physicist and Nobel Laureate.

Before Denis is born, his mother receives pre-implantation diagnosis. As a result, the dwarfism he would have inherited has been circumvented. But this very intervention makes him different to his siblings, and causes unforeseen problems for Denis – in a thought-provoking play investigating the ethical boundaries of genetics and medical practice.
