Parentcraft
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Parents-to-be await their first antenatal class. Sharon, mother of seven, takes charge, handing out poorly-spelt name labels. Awkward couple Susan and Derek boast about their moneymaking schemes, much to the horror of Lesley, an Inland Revenue employee Siobhan misinterprets most of the conversation whilst continuously eating pickled foods. The midwife is still nowhere to be seen; Lesley brandishes her Filofax; Susan reveals shes unhappy in her marriage and Siobhan notices three of their names start with S! Brimming with awkward British humour and brilliant one-liners, an unexpected twist hauls this hysterical play back to reality.
