In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather and political unrest, a young couple want a child but are running out of time
If they over think it, they'll never do it
But if they rush, it could be a disaster
They want to have a child for the right reasons
Except, what exactly are the right reasons?
And what will be the first to destruct the planet or the relationship?
"Macmillan's play is at once harrowing and blisteringly funny, bleak and redemptive ... It combines hyper-real dialogue with a quirky form that expands and contracts time before our eyes, creating the almost physical sensation of being hurtled towards an uncertain future. The piece's furious pace lives up to its title, leaving audience, and no doubt actors, feeling the need to pause for breath in a world that does not allow it - 5 STARS" ~ What's On Stage
