Event Description

A gorgeous play from the United Kingdom about the world we want to bring our children into.


In Ikea a man tentatively suggests to his partner that perhaps they should have a baby, and whoosh – out fly all her pent up anxieties about the future. Do they really want to bring another car driving, plastic bag using, aerosol spraying, avocado importing Westerner into the world? What about the planet? And how do you carbon offset a baby? For months on end they agonize over the biggest decision of their lives. But when their love breaks into a million tiny pieces, will they ever be able to put it back together again? Called "brutally honest, funny and current" by the Guardian after its UK premiere this is a can't miss show of theatricality and heart.

Artistic Director Sean Lewis says: “Duncan Macmillan is everything I want from a playwright: bold, theatrical and writing directly about the world we are living in. This is can't miss for anyone who wondered about their children and the state of the world."
