Baby with the Bathwater

Helen (Alice Harvey), Angela (Jessica Wallace) & Kate (Alicia Murphy)

Role: ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Helen and John are new parents. Proud, loving … unhinged. When the stork delivers their first bundle of joy, what follows is a brilliantly theatrical and wildly hilarious struggle as one young person attempts to establish their identity despite zany nannies, lethal toys, parklife mothers, downtown buses, megalomaniacal school mistresses, and an analyst with issues of her own. Satirising therapy-crazed America, this comedy reminds us of the power and simplicity of human intimacy and true love.
