PaperBack (15 Sep 2017)

Daniel and Oliver are about to have their first baby. With their best friend, Priya, acting as surrogate, they’ve turned the study into a nursery and the bottles are sterilised. All that’s missing is the bundle of joy they’ve been pining for.

But when Daniel’s chaotic mother gatecrashes the baby shower with a few home truths, the cracks in Daniel and Oliver’s relationship begin to show. Are they as ready for this as they think they are? And more importantly, is Priya?

'Thompson's play moves through three, very different, acts. The breezy humour of the first is soon consumed by the courtroom drama of the second, before ending with a mediation on how toxic upbringings, secrets and lies can corrode a relationship... These emotionally broken, even dislikeable, characters probably aren’t people you’d wish to spend any time with, but their neuroses and insecurities are fascinating to watch... a funny, biting and chilling comedy about surrogacy and family.' The Stage ★★★★
