Third Angel presents: PARTUS

Lisa had been for a walk in the park

Stacey had borrowed her best friend's dress

Rachael was ready for a fight

Linda was on call

And Lucy only just made it

Different women from different backgrounds, all brought together on one night for a birth-day they’ll never forget.

We call it the miracle of birth and we go weak at the knees at the sight of a new baby. But we don’t think we talk about it enough. Using real birth stories collected over 2 years of research, Partus celebrates the amazing women who go through this life changing experience and come out the other side a mother, the dads and the doulas, and the small army of midwives and obstetricians working impossible hours in difficult situations.

If you’ve had sex, or a baby, or if you are even remotely considering having either, this is a show you need to see. Join Third Angel on a rollercoaster ride through joy, hilarity, fear and sheer bloody mindedness with songs, dance, stories and cups of tea.

Audience reactions
