Kate Atkinson (Wentworth) and Bert LaBonté (The Mountaintop) star in the Australian premiere of this internationally acclaimed modern relationship drama – a witty, tender and profound 21st Century love story by multi award-winning British writer Duncan Macmillan, directed by Clare Watson.
In Ikea – of all places – 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?
They leave with nothing they went in for, but they do come out with a full set of self-assembly dilemmas. For months on end they agonise 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?
