The Baby Diary (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

After years of trying to conceive, Jenny’s finally pregnant, and she and Mike don’t waste any time anxiously and enthusiastically documenting every single step towards parenthood. While the father-to-be attempts to get as many ‘Likes’ on Facebook as he can for ‘Dad Blog’, he’s given the task of telling flat mate Simon to vacate his porn-plastered bedroom to make way for baby Ed. Emily Watson Howes’ latest play is a unique fusion of projected film and live action, which tells the tale of the couple’s amusing and familiar journey from sad farewell to Duncan the house rabbit to the hysterical taxi ride to the hospital. Drenched in irony, this is a perfectly charming comedy about the tribulations of modern parenthood.

Assembly George Square, 3 – 28 Aug (not 15), 4.00pm (5.00pm), £7.00 – £9.50, fpp42.
