The only words are to do with adoption. But that’s not what happened to us. What happened to us was something quite different.

Being a young mum is supposed to be hard – but for Hanna, the only thing she’s ever been brilliant at is raising her beloved daughter Ellie. Until a DNA test reveals staggering news. Ellie is not Hanna’s child. And now her ‘real’ parents want to meet.

How can an ancient mix-up in an overstretched maternity ward be explained to a three-year-old? Is Hanna supposed to let these strangers into her daughter’s life? Forced to question what being a parent really means, Hanna makes a drastic decision that will change all their lives.

Premiere presentation by a new playwright,

“Unnerving to say the least... one minute it's lighthearted, the next it's depressing... Khan Levy gives a phenomenal performance”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)

“Gripping monologue... Khan Levy gives an outstanding performance.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Khan Levy: compelling... Potter is sharp and entertaining about nature and nurture and the divisiveness of British society. ”

Kate Kellaway (Observer)

“I found myself hanging on every word. Levy has the gift of seeming to address each audience member individually.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Subtly amplifies questions of how much circumstances affect lives and identities... A lovely naturalness to the writing,”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“Engrossingly written... beautifully performed... The script and Khan Levy's portrayal have a lovely unforced naturalness.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Well-intentioned but clunky play... Turvey keeps things taut and Khan Levy does an outstanding job.”

Ka Bradley (Time Out, The Stage)

“Deals carefully and intelligently with real, pertinent issues of class, care, family and love... A believable, relatable voice.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)
