From Damn Cheek’s website:

Starting with a roll in the hay and ending with a crime against nature, this comic, caustic, cautionary tale careers through the centuries – from rural idyll to urban tragedy, from innocence to experience, from midwifery to murder.

Sigh as Janet and John fall in love and dream of having the perfect baby. Tremble as they discover the dangers that lie ahead. Gasp as they leave the country for the lure of London society. Shudder as their story unfolds in a shady, time-shifting world populated by the likes of Sir Quantity Marwit, Lady Fashion and Dick Dodger.

A scurrilously scatological helter-skelter tale of a young couple striving to do the best for their baby, the action spirals out of control with devastating consequences. This is a must-see for anyone with hopes of being a parent – or anyone who’s ever been a child.

We hope to see you online!

All at Relational Spaces.
