KXT on Broadway

181 Broadway, Ultimo


Premiering at London's Royal Court Theatre in 2018 and making it's Australian Premiere at KXT on Broadway in November 2023, this funny and deeply poignant play is more relevant now than ever. An examination of the modern family unit, the pressure of perfectionism on parents, loss and the promise of Artificial Intelligence to remove the pain of these, very human, experiences.

“Thomas Eccleshare’s new play about parenthood is deftly done, funny and, at times, almost unbearably poignant”

The Times | Ann Treneman


"This might be a little more complicated than the bed but still, I’m sure it’s the kind of thing we can crack on our own."

Harry and Max weren’t satisfied with their first attempt at parenthood, so they’re giving it a second go. Only this time they’ve got a 30-day money-back guarantee and an easy-to-follow construction manual. They’re certain, as long as they follow it step-by-step, this kid's going to be perfect. And if it's not, they have plenty of options available to them…

In this curious, contemporary, and candidly coarse play audiences are confronted with characters who try to mask their deep regret and pain with distractions, newness and technology. But to what end?
