Kith and Kin was another excellent play in the intimate Crucible studio for me. It is a shame it was less than half full. Perhapas the run has been too long? It has been on since 15th September and continues untill 7th October. Tickets are less than £20 and I highly recommend.
Sterling acting including one actress convincing playing two very different roles.
It centres around a homosexual couple’s surrogacy journey . There are three vastly different but equally intense acts. The plot covering the three acts has plenty of twist turns. Despite the intensity; at least in the first two acts if not the last, there are laughs along the way whilst addressing; legal and ethical issues surrounding surrogacy, family relationships, abuse within families, progression of rights to civil partnerships and later marriage to homosexuals within a 30something’s life, domestic violence within heterosexual relationships and qualifications to be a parent. Thought provoking whether a parent or not.
