Alex and Rupert aren’t a conventional match but a caffeinated meeting on the underground ignites a spark. Skip forward to them fighting over baby names, nursery colours and ways to save money. All the signs of a normal family in waiting.
Then Alex goes into labour, their baby is born still and their world implodes.
What follows is a window into how a couple find the strength to move forward, the will to stay together, and the determination to keep the memory of their child alive.
A play that takes us to the depth of grief to find hope, to the edge of insanity to find reason and finds humour in the most unexpected places.
Recommended for ages 16+.
