NannyA Comedy Play with Songs
She said to me this morning “everything you do fails’’ because I spent twenty minutes trying to work out how to fit her car seat. She just sat there just going “fail, fail, fail, fail, fail” while I was scrabbling away on YouTube looking up how you fit the Maxi Cosi 10. “Everything you do fails.” EVERYTHING? Who says that to someone? Who turns up to work and gets told that?!
Yeah, that’s brutal. And she’s backed it up with evidence.
Meet Lea and Amy. Below average nannies with bigger than average ambitions.
Every week they take the kids they look after to a ‘Stay and Play’ class and seize a moment between the snacks, songs, snot and screaming to plot the twists and turns of their real careers as a comedy double act.
Matthew Floyd Jones (Kathy & Stella Solve a Murder!) writes sublime original music and songs for this world premiere of a poignant and funny new play about friendship, faltering, and staying true to yourself despite it all. Script and story by Alana Ramsey (The Crown), Lizzie Stables (The Inbetweeners), and Jenny Rainsford (Fleabag).

Audience Feedback (script-in-hand sharing, Nov 2022)
Although parents/carers with babies are welcome to all shows of Nanny, our specific Babes in Arms performance has a more relaxed feel, where audience members are welcome to walk around the space and come and go from the theatre where needed.
There will also be some technical alternations to lighting and sound, so babies and carers can have the most enjoyable time possible.
