    PART OF INCOMING FESTIVAL 2019

    What would happen if most self-identifying women across the world grew to be nine foot tall?

    Cara and Nate are a hard-working young couple looking to start a family. They’re bumbling through the daunting world of pregnancy tests, maternity clothes and flat-pack cot-building, all the while trying to come to grips with having to create an actual human person. That is, until suddenly, inexplicably, a vast proportion of all the women in the world start to grow.

    Sleepless Theatre Company strives to ethically produce bold, concept-driven work that cherishes the relationship between performers and audience. They dare, make mistakes and exist in that glorious, muddling crossover between intense ambition and logistical feasibility.


    A Younger Theatre, New Diorama Theatre, HOME Manchester and Tobacco Factory Theatres join forces for the first time to bring you INCOMING Festival 2019. One week, three cities, 15 different shows. A showcase of the very best emerging theatre companies from across the country. An unmissable festival for audiences and aspiring theatre makers alike, with tickets just £5. Alongside the curated festival of inspiring performances, there is a programme of workshops and events from leading industry figures and all affordable or free.
