A play by Nina Segal. Part of the Orange Tree Theatre Directors' Festival. "Try a story. Yes, a story. We listened to stories when we were young and pink and bawling and now we don't cry in the night." Two new parents are up in the middle of the night and their baby daughter won't stop crying. They try to soothe her with stories, but the stories tell of a dark and hopeless world outside. Their fears and anxieties come to life and seep into the nursery through the cracks. Maybe bringing a child into this world wasn't such a good idea? Nina Segal's searing exploration of contemporary parenthood first premiered at the Gate Theatre in 2016. "A witty, bold and confrontational debut play which is as smart and funny as it is provocative" The Stage "A piece of such insight, humour and darkness." Time Out Her other plays include Big Guns (The Yard); Becky and Lucy (New Ohio, New York); Twenty to Five (Bushwick Starr Reading Series); and That Something Exists (in development with HighTide). Nina has been a finalist for the Yale Drama Series Prize 2016 and the Adrian Pagan Award 2015. Directed by Evangeline Cullingworth.
