Love and Other Thought Experiments

Sophie Ward

An ordinary domestic situation with a same sex couple deciding to have a baby. That’s the simple bit. What then follows - a birth, a death, a resurrection together with a complete time warp into the future - makes it all slightly complicated! Clever and well written, unusual and even a wee bit funny.

Tonight, when you started talking about nits.’ 
‘Oh, for God’s sake. Children get nits, that’s not an excuse, it’s just what children do.
