' For Catherine, a wealthy Australian living in London, the missing piece in her perfect life is a baby. Across the Atlantic in Massachusetts, mother of two Nellie is willing to help her – for a price. Sharing the highs and lows of pregnancy via Skype, email and telephone, these two very different women will ultimately have to decide: who does this baby really belong to?

'This funny and moving new Australian play explores the intricacies of the modern family and one of the century’s most emotionally charged dilemmas. ' (Production summary)
