The Quiet House

Nick Hern Books
Type: Text

Jess and Dylan are in love. They want a family. That's all they have ever wanted.

This perfectly ordinary couple find themselves on an extraordinary journey when they enter the world of IVF. Forced to fight for the family they so desperately want, they put their faith in science and their relationship to the ultimate test.

A funny, moving and unswervingly honest love story, The Quiet House was co-produced by Echo Presents, the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Park Theatre, London. It premiered at Birmingham Rep in 2016 before transferring to the Park Theatre.
