Alice’s life is perfect. She has a wonderful husband and a gorgeous new baby. The only thing is: her husband has left on a work trip and the baby is colicky. Alice cannot sleep. Into her chaotic world arrive two fantastical creatures who take an unnatural interest in her child. Lisa Ryder explores the taboo subject of postpartum depression and the extreme places the mind can go. A searing and irreverent take on a subject to which every parent will relate.

It’s funny, it’s incisive, it’s smart as hell. It’s also utterly original and thoroughly theatrical.

- Michael Healey, acclaimed Canadian playwright
