Have you ever wondered whether having a child is a responsible or a selfish act?
 
Amidst the constant bombardment of headlines and news reports about tragedies, destruction and global political unrest, can we really justify bringing a child into the world?
 
Don’t miss the world premiere of Nina Segal’s In the Night Time (Before the Sun Rises). A play that explores one couple’s anxiety over having their first baby with humour, empathy and understanding. 
 
Over the course of one night, a man and woman try to comfort their screaming infant. But, as the hours grow longer, and they become intoxicated from lack of sleep, the world becomes elastic around them and the horrors that scar our planet crash into the baby’s room.
 
Book now to see this powerful and pertinent new play directed by Genesis Future Director Award winner, Ben Kidd.
