Emily Writes' Rants in the Dark - the play (New Zealand, New Zealand)


1 Jul 2019 - 1 Jul 2027

Short Synopsis

Emily Writes shot to stardom after a rant in the dark on her blog received 1 million hits overnight. People across the world connected to the words every parent thinks at 4am after the third wake-up of the night, but would rarely be brave enough to say out loud. This play is an adaptation of Emily's best-selling book, itself based on her blog. Her story shows the frustrations as well as the tender moments of real parenting, as opposed to what you thought it was going to be like, or what well-meaning advice-givers tell you it should be like. It's a comedy with real heart, for mums and anyone who has a mum.
