A New Life

Robbie and Jess are living the life. He’s a successful computer programmer and she is on her way to being a headteacher. Until, totally out of the blue, Jess discovers she is pregnant. They’ll be fine. It’s just a baby. I mean… how disruptive to their metropolitan, 21st century lives can that be?

They. Have. No. Idea.

A heart-felt, surreal and truthful musical comedy from the creator of Spuds and Crocodile Rock that may or may not feature a tap-dancing baby…

Musical Director: Ross Adam Brown

Presented in Association with Traverse Theatre
