From Me To Us
Mon 31 May 21 - Sun 6 Jun 21Book Tickets
A playful and poignant performance letter to a future child from their future father.
In 2019, the law in the UK changed to allow for single father surrogacy. Section 54a of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 now allows single people to apply for parental orders, to have access to surrogacy leave and pay, to obtain appropriate birth certificates, and to authenticate their parenthood.
With videography by Ben Horrigan for Studio 91 Media (www.studio91media.co.uk) and music composed by BAFTA and Academy Award winner Chris Benstead (Gravity, The Gentleman, No Time to Die), From Me to Us is an important project that provides the space for discussions about parenthood, whilst documenting the political change against a backdrop of autobiographical experiences.
How it will work
This is a Pay What You Feel digital event. As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you paying between £3 and £10. We also understand people’s income can be precarious, hence the free and lower price options. All revenue from ticket sales for events at the Lawrence Batley Theatre will always go back to support professional artists, through residencies, commissions, touring work or for more bespoke projects where the experience is enhanced through co-creation with arts professionals. We thank you for all your continued support.
Once you have purchased your ticket you will receive a booking confirmation containing your screening link. This will activate at 00:01 GMT on the date you have booked and expire 48 hours later.
