A RED DOOR PUBLICATION
Georgie and Evelyn are a couple searching for a sperm donor. Enter Adam - and Baby X is conceived.
Campion Decent takes us on a nine month journey of confusion, denial and exultation, smashing a few notions of the traditional family along the way. Fabulously theatrical and very very queer, Baby X is short, sharp and snappy.
Originally produced as part of the 2000 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, this is a provocative and hilarious vision of a family in the 21st century.
"It is plays like this that remind me that the true path - the path that will lead us in to the light - is one of tolerance, love, humour and compassion."
- Tom Healey, Australian Plays Literary Manager and Red Door Curator (2010-2018).
