Nina Segal's searing exploration of contemporary parenthood first premiered at the Gate Theatre in 2016.
Other plays include: Big Guns (Yard Theatre), Danger Signals (New Ohio, NY), A Collection of Cells (development readings at HighTide Festival and Bushwick Starr) and The National (development reading at New Diorama).
Nina has been a finalist for Theatertreffen Stückemarkt 2018 and the Yale Drama Series Prize 2016 and is currently in residence with the Bush Theatre's Project 2036 scheme.
Try a story. Yes, a story.
We listened to stories when we were young and pink and bawling and now we don't cry in the night.
Two new parents are up in the middle of the night and their baby daughter won't stop crying.
They try to soothe her with stories, but the stories tell of a dark and hopeless world outside.
Their fears and anxieties come to life and seep into the nursery through the cracks.
Maybe bringing a child into this world wasn't such a good idea?
