Directed by Adam Barnard, the play features former Ch 4 "Teachers" co-stars James Lance (Miles) , Adrian Bower (Dan) .

A dark comedy for our times – a story of middle class anxiety, electric wheelchairs and salvation. Penny and Miles are awaiting the imminent birth of their first child from completely different perspectives. Whilst recovering alcoholic Penny is the epitome of calm anticipation and deep breathing, her partner Miles is gradually retreating into a quagmire of fear and neurosis about the baby’s future. Armed only with a candlestick and a bold imagination he spends his days saving the world by creating a utopian fantasy for his son and everyone else to live in. As Miles starts to surround himself with a bizarre armoury of cast-offs from Ebay, Penny’s ex-alcoholic, ex-boyfriend, Dan, and his new-age karma-embracing girlfriend, Layla, are also on hand to offer their own unique blend of advice.

Looking for the best seats...
