Lisa had been for a walk in the park
Stacey had borrowed her best friend’s dress
Faye had collected her daughter from nursery
Hannah was in the twelfth hour of a shift with no sign of a break
Kirsty knew no-one would believe who she really was
Rachael was ready for a fight
Linda was on call
And Lucy only just made it
Different women from different backgrounds all brought together on one night that would turn out to be a birthday they’d never forget.
Partus is a story of love, fear, joy, resilience and bravery. If you’ve had a baby, thought about it, are planning to or know anyone who has, this is the show for you. This is the sex education they never mentioned at school.
Suitability for 7:30pm performance: 15+ (parent’s discretion)
Duration: 90mins including a ‘theatrical’ interval where we will serve cups of tea.
What is a baby-friendly performance? *Our 10:30am show is a baby-friendly performance which means parents can come to the theatre without needing childcare, or worrying that they’ll disturb other audience members. This performance will be relaxed which means it’s okay to pop in and out as you need, to make noise, breastfeed or change, and all of the other things that come with taking little ones out in public. The house lights will be set a little higher for convenience, and set sound levels a little lower than usual, but there may still be sudden noises and lighting changes that could disturb a sensitive or sleeping child. There may also be other parents popping in and out, and it might be a noisy audience! We will have a buggy park available.
Important note: This performance is for babes-in-arms (the company recommend under 12 months). It is unsuitable for toddlers and is not a family show.
Additional info: This performance contains strong language and adult themes.
