In The Press

Thompson's play moves through three, very different, acts. The breezy humour of the first is soon consumed by the courtroom drama of the second, before ending with a mediation on how toxic upbringings, secrets and lies can corrode a relationship... These emotionally broken, even dislikeable, characters probably aren’t people you’d wish to spend any time with, but their neuroses and insecurities are fascinating to watch... a funny, biting and chilling comedy about surrogacy and family.
