The Appointment is a dystopian piece set in an imagined future where the female sex appear to be on the brink of extinction. Two young people, Natty and Emmel, both dressed as men arrive at the ‘Healing Hub’ for an appointment as Natty, one of the last of the female kind, is experiencing some unfathomable symptoms – ‘a steadily growing round bump on the abdomen’. When they meet Dr Cara in their appointment they discover not only that Natty is pregnant, but also much more about the world that they inhabit.
