    “The most joyfull thing about this performance is the fact that here we are presented with a playwright that is worth getting your hopes up for in the future.

          • What is it?: The Big Babies is a new play where the playwright addresses the ambiguious value of love. A middle-aged carpenter arrives at Mommy´s house seeking love and affection. Love that he is willing to pay for. Mommy will take care of him and love him - for the right amount - like all her other big babies. Produced by Lab Loki
