Big Baby



John and Janet have given birth to a miraculous baby and obviously want what’s best for him, but subsequent education by leading London academics produces dire results for the whole family. Multi-award winning writer Brendan Murray offers a surreal, dark comedy about the effect of education, education, education.


A scurrilously scatological helter-skelter tale of a young couple striving to do the best for their baby, the action spirals out of control with devastating consequences: a must see for anyone with hopes of being a parent – or who’s ever been a child.


Big Baby was originally commissioned by Theatre Centre and The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester in 1999.  Critics wrote of the show:


“Wonderfully zany, eloquent, satirical, funny and good”The Stage
