From the team behind For Black Boys and Queens of Sheba comes an uproarious new comedy about Black womanhood, sisterhood, motherhood – and babyhood.

After an unexpected break-up and being beaten down by comparison to her married little sister, Ama embarks on a frantic journey to become a mother. Rollercoastering from a Black sperm donor shortage to a racialised healthcare system – and an overbearing family of her own – Ama’s charging head-first into embarrassing conversations, awkward encounters and defiant decisions.

Playwright Jessica Hagan (Queens of Sheba) reunites with multi-award-winning company Nouveau Riche (For Black Boys…) for this bold, radiant world premiere.
