My name is Aya. I’m eight months old and I live in a buggy. I share a room with my mum, Nur, and a strange man named Jaden. I bloody love bathtime.

Jaden, Nur and Aya didn’t always live here. They needed to escape another country and they’ve ended up in a rotting room in London.

Nur goes to college. When she isn’t there, Jaden chews leaves and hallucinates home. He sees giant rabbits with burning red eyes. He thinks Aya is someone else, someone dangerous. But she’s just a baby. Isn’t she?

From Josh Azouz, writer of the “strange and fascinating” The Mikvah Project (★★★★ Time Out, The Stage), and award-winning director Ned Bennett (★★★★★ Pomona, National Theatre; ★★★★★ An Octoroon, Orange Tree Theatre), comes a horror comedy about trying to build a normal life when nothing about life is normal.

“This is yet another theatrical happy-ever-after for the Yard” – The Guardian

“There is a horror here and a rumbling fear that begins to claw at us, a wild energy that begins to pull us in” – Exeunt

“Acid-bright… bloody stimulating” – Time Out

Production photography by The Other Richard.
