Viral blog-turned-book Rants in the Dark by Emily Writes has been transported from the page to the stage with unfiltered hilarity and heartbreak.

In this authentic play for everyone – not just “for tired mamas everywhere” – people will find themselves laughing out loud and nodding in recognition at the raw truth of parenthood (and grandparenthood).

The Wellington blogger, who had two boys who were poor sleepers, used to write her “rants” in the wee hours and once woke to find one post had received a million hits overnight.

Starring Renee Lyons, Bronwyn Turei and Amelia Reid-Meredith, Rants in the Dark, embraces all the messy contradictions of having kids. It’s also a biting antidote to all the judgmental supermarket-tutterers and plane-smirkers everywhere.

“Every parent has to see it. I had alternate tears from laughing and crying. Such a brilliantly pulled together work with three kickass wahine actors.” – Booksellers NZ
