'I say please because it makes people give me things.

'In an anonymous child care centre, somewhere in the city, there’s a nasty cough going around. At the same time four children gather to tell stories of Brian, a monster that lives at the top of a newly-sprung tree. Soon this innocent playtime curdles and infects the lives of three parents whose own sense of reality comes into question.

'Caught between doing what’s right for their kids and confronting their own demons, these parents will quickly find that there are worse things than a child-eating monster with teeth in his belly.

'Having worked casually in daycare centres, Sydney playwright Emily Calder has had ample time to absorb the nuances of children - as well as their parents. With great attention to detail, Calder takes their everyday dialogue and reweaves it into Cough, a psychedelic comedy examining dangerous imaginations, anxiety and the complexities of unconditionally loving little people.'
