The Baby Diary

Wry play featuring couple soon to be parents

Emily Watson Howes’ wry play features a couple soon to become parents: she’s suitably over-excited, he’s more concerned about losing his pet rabbit Duncan as he relates to his filmed ‘dadblog’. For a piece about the relentless march of technology, it’s either unfortunate or apt that a distracting time delay in the dadblog sequences mean you’re forced to take your eye off the big screen and stare at anything else.

Assembly George Square, 623 3030, until 28 Aug, 4pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8.50).
