PARTUS THIS MONTH
Sheffield’s Third Angel explore birth – one of the most familiar yet mysterious aspects of humanity, in their new production with Sheffield Theatres, Partus at the Studio Theatre from Friday 15 to Wednesday 20 January.
Birth. It’s a massive life or death thing that happens every minute of every day in every country of the world. The expectations, the exhaustion, the euphoria. The shock, the sadness, the stupidly long shifts. The joy, the pain, the mess. Oh, and that first cup of tea that tasted better than anything, ever.
Third Angel delve into the myths, the statistics and the politics of birth, engaging with real people and real stories. Based on conversations with mothers, fathers, midwives and obstetricians, this show examines one of the most familiar aspects of all of our lives – birth – in all its bloody glory.
There will be laughter, hand-gripping tension, dancing, tears, shouting, singing and love – you may never think about birth in the same way again.
Partus comes to the Studio Theatre from Friday 15 – Wednesday 20 January. Tickets can be purchased from Sheffield Theatres’ Box Office in-person, by phone on 0114 249 6000 or online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk and are priced from £5.00 – £14.00 (a transaction fee of £1.50 (£1.00 online) applies to all bookings made at the Box Office, excluding cash).
