From one tired mama to another.
"Parenting is hard. And awesome. And the best thing ever. And it's so hard. And amazing. And it's a mess of contradictions and we can't get through it alone. Let's get through it together."
Wellington blogger Emily Writes' best-selling book Rants in the Dark is making the leap from the page to the stage. Emily's heartfelt and hilarious writing explores her parenting experience, offering comfort and connection to other exhausted parents all over the world.

Honest, authentic and laugh out loud funny, the play is full of the things that every parent thinks at 4am, but would rarely be brave enough to say out loud.

Emily shot to fame after a rant on her blog received 1 million hits overnight. Celebrate the truth and hilarity of parenthood (and grandparenthood!) and track the impact of what happened when Emily's blog went viral overnight. People across the world connected to the words every parent thinks after the third wake-up of the night,

"It was affirming and beautiful and I loved it so, so much."
"It was so deeply moving. It was hugely hilarious. Real stories for real people. My heart was bursting."
"You are telling it like it is, the realities of parenthood, pregnancy and birth… and god knows the world needs more realism around parenting."
"Hilarious and wrenching. All fathers should see it."
"My husband and I absolutely loved the show! Such a perfect performance to represent the book."
