SHORT + SWEET THEATRE
It Happens to a Lot of People
Show 1 | 1 – 3 September
When a woman shares her excitement over her long-awaited and much-wanted pregnancy, she is full of fun and joy over motherhood. Happy to let strangers touch her belly, she feels a baby belongs to everyone because we all celebrate new life and potential. When the pregnancy does not quite go to plan, she has to relive the experience and explore the highs as well as the depths of pregnancy. A one-woman show.
