An anarchic devised fringe show – playful and amiable… very much an original theatre show, (with) memorable exchanges and speeches… the writing reveals itself fully as a rather surprising, mordant and tender dissection of interdependency.”  
(BBC Writersroom, Script Room 12)

“The dialogue is sharp, witty, and engaging. This is a very strong play written by a very strong writer.” (Papatango New Writing Prize, Longlist 2017)

 

Is having a baby the only way forward in a stale relationship? And who is going to carry this baby, when the relationship is between two women?  Maybe two babies could be “a nice way of settling the argument.” The prospect of motherhood is not the only thing that is worrying Jay and Alex. And Andrea also has her doubts about this profoundly painful relationship her best friend Jay is in.

And then there’s the Prozac Dreams.

 

 

Writer Eleonora Fusco, founder of The Lettuce Dream Theatre Company,
makes her directorial debut at The Hen and Chickens Theatre this October 2017
with this new comedy, which has much to say about relationships, pregnancy and mental health.


Tickets available here.
