A Vanishing Point and National Theatre of Scotland co-production, in association with the Citizens Theatre

Based on the film by Jan Švankmajer

A couple, desperate but unable to start a family, develop an intense relationship with a tree stump carved to look like a baby.

Believing it to be real, gradually their obsession brings the stump of wood to life. As the fixation grows, so does the ‘baby’ along with its monstrous appetite.
