"We’re not the new normal. We’re the new fucking extraordinary."


Zeb & Eoin have met, kissed, fallen in love, moved in, got married... What’s next?

Zeb will be Fun Daddy.

Eoin will be Serious Daddy.

Beth’s job is to decide if they get to be Daddies at all.

Together they navigate the exposing road to adoption, forced to lay bare fears and secrets, all in the hope of being deemed "appropriate" parents.

Written by Barry McStay (Vespertilio), directed by Matthew Iliffe (Off-West End Award Winner, Bacon), Breeding is a funny, moving drama about parenthood, queer families & enduring love.
