Preview Season

*** Q&A with Emily Writes, cast & crew after the show Thursday 27 September ***

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.

“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.”

Lyndee-Jane Rutherford (Hand to God, La Casa Azul) and Mel Dodge (Miss Brontë) are proud to be leading the stage adaptation of Emily’s hilarious and heart-felt best-selling book in this one week development season, part of the Women’s Theatre Festival.

Are you looking for a babysitter so you can enjoy a night out at the theatre? 

The Babysitters Club is an online babysitting booking service that fosters a nurturing, inspiring, and safe community, providing parents with certainty and freedom.

The Babysitters Club is proud to be supporting Rants in the Dark – the play at Circa Theatre and wish to support parents who want to enjoy a night out. For the duration of the season (25 to 29 September) any Sitters booked by parents attending the play will get their service fee waived. There will still be a cost for the actual Sitter, but The Babysitters Club will not be charging for their time to organise a suitable Sitter for your family.

You can choose to have a babysitter come to your home to babysit your family, or team up with friends and family to pool children at one house and get one (or more) sitters to look after a group of children. Ratio of 1 sitter to 5 children.
