0-18 months & parents

A Tale of Us is currently in development with writer Sharon Kanolik.

Sleep is like an old friend I’ve not seen for a long time. She’s stopped returning my calls. But some nights feel sort of magic. Just you and me watching a new day being born.

Ivy’s just had a baby. She’s never felt so full of love – or so alone. Days (and nights) can be tough. But she’s working it out.

A Tale of Us is a brand new play for parents and their babies. Join Ivy and her little one on a funny, frank and magical journey through their first year of life together. Blending drama and multi-sensory playtime in a relaxed and beautifully designed environment, this is a celebration of the wonder, joys and challenges of becoming a new parent.

After each performance there will be a guided Stay and Play session – a chance for everyone to explore the world of the show and meet other parents and babies.

Made for parents with children ages 0-18 months.

We are looking for venue partners so that we can tour a full production of A Tale of Us during Spring 2025. Please get in touch with us to find out more.
