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.

Hari 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, he’s going to be perfect.

“Arresting, original sci-fi domestic tale... Vernel is quite superb, an arresting and technically intensely skilful performer.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

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

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Dazzlingly assured, funny and perturbing.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“What a treat... Playful, provocative but, crucially, easily accessible drama.”

Adam Bloodworth (Metro)

“Vernel really shines... His movements are meticulously precise... you can't avert your eyes from him.”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)

“Hamish Pirie directs Thomas Eccleshare's play with flair, but there's a lack of human warmth to proceedings. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Fun... Pirie has assembled Eccleshare’s play with care and flair, but the writing still feels a bit flatpack.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Entertaining and ingeniously staged dystopian drama is cleverly fabricated but bloodless.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Sharply funny and ingeniously staged... doesn’t always supply the emotional evidence to reinforce its intellectual arguments.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Combines a contemporary take on the Frankenstein myth with a satirical attitude to Middle England and its suburban conformity.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Begins by advertising its cleverness and goes on to be far cleverer and more penetrating... An evening of strong performances.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)
