'I couldn't imagine having a child. Not even when I was sat in my Primark bikini in a plastic hot tub at Homerton Hospital, sucking the shit out of the gas and air... There's a man sitting on the wall outside the flat. He just sat down the other day and never left.'

Inspired by true events, Katie Guicciardi's brutally honest and amusing drama explores our complex relationship with "help" – our desire to give it and our need to seek it for ourselves – in an increasingly isolating society.

Directed by Lisa Cagnacci (Artistic Associate, Stephen Joseph Theatre).
