What if the baby cries on stage?Granny will be available on stage for cuddles and hugs with the baby.
Are the audience allowed to interact with the baby? No.
What if the baby is ill?We have an understudy in mind who will step in or the show will be cancelled.
Is this allowed?The procedure for theatre shows is the same as for babies and children who model in children's clothing and product photos, and appear in TV shows and films. We have a license from the relevant authority.
What is the point of the show? The show is to explore the dynamic of members of the public watching an anonymous baby, and how that relationship is changed when put in a formal theatre environment. Read more in our Directors' Statement.
Are you affiliated with the charities you're named as supporting?
No. This is not a fund-raising exercise; we just don't want to make money from the show. It seemed fitting to give any profits we make (if any) to people helping to make children's lives better.
So, is the baby going to perform?
No. The baby will just live a normal slice of its life for 30 minutes, with its grandmother, surrounded by toys and blankets it recognises.
Is this baby special, that you wanted to put it on show?
No – the 'normality' of the baby is the point.
I'd like to pose with the baby afterwards/get it to hold a 'marry me' placard/wear the t-shirt of our show.See above, sorry – you won't be allowed to interact with the baby. Those are all great ideas to ask other performers in other shows though!
Can I take pictures or video?
No, that's against both venue rules and our child protection policy. The shows will only exist in the audience's memory once they end.
Is it a boy or a girl?
We'll never say.
