Two actors make a play to clarify “the events”. Initially, it’s a classic story: boy meets girl, girl gets accidentally pregnant, boy and girl face a decision: keep the baby or not keep the baby? Listing pros and cons, the protagonists do their best to take control of the situation but just as they find their answer, the play develops a life of its own and nothing turns out as expected. Through repetition and changes of form - Dance? Avant-Garde? Crime drama? Musical? - this piece explores the abstract, violent and discombobulating experience of multiple miscarriages.

As the actors grapple with gender roles, intangible grief and a dehumanising healthcare system, the structure of the play starts to fall apart in this sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking piece. It’s a rollercoaster ride where body and mind are as out of sync as the play itself.


Devised and performed by Linn Johansson and Matthew Coulton
