There is no such thing…until you listen.
It’s an age-old story: Man wants woman. Woman wants baby. Baby needs constant care. Lives are turned upside-down and shaken. Hard. Misunderstandings and mis-steps dance through ancient shadows. The baby emerges as a person who takes her parents on a tour of the past where they discover who they really are and who they might become.
Presented as theatre-for-one, ‘There is no such thing as a baby’ is an immersive experience in pre-verbal communication. You can listen in English or Spanish.
