The Sun Apparatus is a multinational, all-female devising theatre company which formed in Spring 2013 at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama in London. The company's core members combine their diverse backgrounds, talents and life experiences to create image-led work that illuminates and critiques both the personal and political. Their aim is to challenge the mundane and play with the absurdities of life.

ABOUT THE PIECE:

COVID BABY is a ridiculous, bittersweet romp through the trials of a COVID pregnancy. It is a comedic recounting of some of the more absurd aspects of pregnancy, such as unseemly amounts of drool and pregnancy fitness classes, interspersed with recollections of difficult times of the past months, such as trying to understand a new healthcare system from the point of view of a foreigner. Plus fruit. Expect fruit in all shapes and sizes.
