In the play The Island of Dr. Moreau, a young man is brought to an island full of strange creatures and odd experimentations.

Even though written in the eighteenth century [I think] this genuine work of art still applies to the modern day. The point of the novel is clear. Even though we have wonderous resources that give us enough to live on, the human race feels the need to tamper with the order and laws of nature. In this play--even though the outcome in this production seems unlikely--the consequences of "screwing things in nature up" are portrayed beautifully. Soon there will be barely anything natural in the modern day of a human life. No matter how "safe" humans think doing something as cross-breeding is, we still run the risk of bringing the two breeds to extinction, therefore only leaving us with the unnatural and possibly damaging-to-the-human-body cross-breed. I believe strongly that things in nature are the way they are supposed to be and if they were meant to be any different, then they would have been. This production is a wonderful however unlikely example of what could happen. And, you must admit, with all of the natural insanity in the world, it COULD happen. Which is why I must say that we should preserve whatever naturality we have left in human lives. And we can't just think of ourselves [humans] either. If we were to screw up the food chain/web there is a possibility that we could bring several species to extinction...or to great pain.

And as I come to an ending, I would like to say that this was an amazing conversion of H.G. Wells's novel to a play. Kudos to the Hip Pocket Theatre, for expressing my thoughts as if you had read my mind!
