Described as ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin on acid’ (Total Theatre), No Kids is the latest energetic, hilarious, moving and thought-provoking play from the multi-award-winning Bristol-based company, Ad Infinitum.
Should we have kids, or not? George and Nir are a real-life same-sex couple trying to answer a question many of us face. Every consideration – adoption, surrogacy, co-parenting, the environmental impact of childbirth, the fears and anxieties, how the past affects parenting and much, much more – brings with it a succession of ethical challenges. Together, George and Nir confront this chaos head-on. And invite you along for the ride.
SHOUT are delighted to welcome Matthew Todd to Birmingham for a post-show conversation. Matthew Todd is a critically acclaimed author and editor of Attitude Magazine, who's best selling book Straight Jacket inspired the show. Matthew will join the company for a open discussion to discuss his work, the show, and the issues surrounding queer families, same sex parenting.
“It’s a beautiful and touching experience, leaping from flights of fantasy to grim
seriousness and brimming with laughter and tears throughout” ★★★★ British Theatre Guide
