How much do you know about gestational surrogacy? Jane Cafarella’s comedy-drama e-baby explores a relationship between a would-be mother and her surrogate. Sneak a peek inside rehearsals as Aequitas Theatre prepares for the UK premiere, which runs 19 to 30 November 2019 at Brockley Jack Theatre. Time to get booking!
Catherine, an Australian expat living in London, has everything – a husband and an international life. Everything except a child. In a last desperate attempt to fulfil her dream of motherhood, she hires Nellie, a mother of two and first-time surrogate, living in the surrogacy state of Massachusetts in the USA. Together they embark on a journey that creates and changes lives.
e-baby is a story of love and betrayal, highlighting the hitherto hidden world of gestational surrogacy, where new life can start with an online ad. The two-hander stars Kat Rogers as Catherine opposite Aequitas artistic director Rachael Bellis as Nellie.
e-baby is directed by Pamela Schermann, who’s joined in the all-female creative team by set designer Isabella Van Braeckel, lighting designer Ellen Kruger, sound designer Charli Hurford and producer Sarah Lawrie.
e-baby runs from 19 to 30 November 2019 at the Brockley Jack Studio Thaetre, 410 Brockley Road, London SE4 2DH with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £13-16. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
