It’s a massive life or death thing that happens every minute of every day in every country of the world. 

The expectations, the exhaustion, the euphoria. The shock, the sadness, the stupidly long shifts. The joy, the pain, the mess. Oh, and that first cup of tea that tasted better than anything, ever.

Third Angel delves into the myths, the statistics and the politics of birth, engaging with real people and real stories. There will be laughter, hand-gripping tension, dancing, tears, shouting, singing and love.

Come and join us: you may never think about birth in the same way again.

Third Angel are a Resident Company at Sheffield Theatres and have been making extraordinary, curious, funny and adventurous theatre for 21 years. 

Please Note: The show on Friday at 10.30am is a baby-friendly performance. All very welcome.
