A new play about sisterly love and what it means to ‘become a woman’.
It’s 2005. Christmas. Chloe is thirteen and has awoken to find puberty has come knocking in the night for the first time. Not exactly the bloody Christmas present she asked for. But at least her older sister Jamie is there to help her unwrap all the additional baggage Santa dropped off on his way through.
It’s 2010. Currently living far apart but still as close as ever, Jamie’s worried about Chlo. In her own experience, throwing up from pain straight after sex is (thankfully) pretty damn unusual. So why does her beloved younger sister breezily chat about it like it’s perfectly normal?
Baby Box is a heartwarming and comic exploration of the wonderfully dysfunctional relationship between siblings. Following a hugely successful run at The Kings Head Theatre in May last year to Developed at the Kings Head Theatre in May last year, Sleepless Theatre ( ★★★★★ The List, Nine Foot Nine) are delighted to bring Baby Box by Laura McGrady to the York Takeover Festival.
