In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather and political unrest, a young couple want a child but are running out of time. If they overthink it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster. They want to have a child for the right reasons. Except what exactly are the right reasons? And what will be the first to destruct--the planet or the relationship?

Starring Liz Beckham and Michael Joplin. Directed for HPT by Lily Wolff.

"Both uproariously funny and unbearably poignant . . . an engaging and poignant piece."
- Exeunt Magazine

"Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life . . . bravely written, startlingly structured."
- The Guardian
