Somewhere between stand-up and storytelling, this is the tale of a struggle to become a parent – through multiple losses and rounds of IVF. After 7 years of Dan and his wife trying, Dan is still asking the universe, is he ready to be a Dad? And considering his genetically weird DNA – should he really be passing this on? – and his continuing tendency for damaging accidents, is his wife’s stoicism in the face of all this enough to see them through? After the latest accident, Dan does start to worry – is the universe telling him no?

This critically acclaimed 2022 Edinburgh Fringe show is coming to the Drayton Arms Theatre on the 9th and 10th May.
