Little Squirt is the award-winning comedy cabaret about the process of sperm donation, featuring all original songs by musical comedian, Darby James. After clicking a Facebook ad in Melbourne’s final lockdown, Darby sets sail across the seas of queer existential mayhem. He explores the absurdities of clinical procreation and considers his choices of potential future parenthood.

In the midst of this hilarious and heartfelt adventure through genetic questionnaires, medical screening and psychological evaluations, Darby finds himself as a sea man stranded in moral purgatory, faced with the unanswerable question: should we be having children?

Winner of Best Cabaret and the Edinburgh Touring Award at Melbourne Fringe 2023, Little Squirt (previously Spunk Daddy) is written and performed by Darby James with direction and dramaturgy by Casey Gould (A Lovely Day To Be Online). Set and Costume is by Betty Auhl.
