Sometimes good news just ain't what it's cracked up to be. When two lesbian couples who've been close friends for years get together for a dinner party, some unexpected pregnancy news rocks both relationships to their core. Emotions run deep (and wild) in this fast-paced, witty piece about what it means to have a child in today's world. Variety has called writer Sarah Gubbins' play "a work of significant depth" that "smartly mixes debate and drama," and Time Out Chicago calls it a "compelling conversation-stoker of a play." Now you can catch The Kid Thing in its West Coast premiere at San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre Center.
