“Is it ethical to bring children into the world? What is the environmental impact and is there still prejudice against children who are raised by gay parents, particularly men? George Mann and Nir Paldi, who are real-life partners and co-artistic directors of Ad Infinitum, explore these questions in a re-worked version of a show first seen in Edinburgh.”

Overview

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.

Age Recommendation: 14+
