“There oughta be a law,” complains Spermegga, a surprisingly eloquent two-week-old baby, to the judge of a juvenile court. The only compensation for the ordeal of being dragged from the security of the womb, the baby argues, is the guarantee of unconditional love from both parents.
This is the first of the two lessons of Spermegga, conceived (a loaded word, in this case) and written by Clarice Taylor, who plays both the judge and the child — through various stages of her life from the womb through young adulthood — as well as Spermegga’s grandmother, her mother Eggna, her father Sperman and a handful of other characters.
