A funny, heartfelt and compelling new play that asks what family means in a modern society, delicately weaving in questions of racial identity, economic privilege, and the lottery of birth.

'The only words are to do with adoption. But that's not what happened to us. What happened to us was something quite different.'

Being a young mum is supposed to be hard - but for Hanna, the only thing she's ever been brilliant at is raising her beloved daughter Ellie.

Until a DNA test reveals staggering news: Ellie is not Hanna's child. And now her 'real' parents want to meet. 

How can an ancient mix-up in an overstretched maternity ward be explained to a three-year-old? Is Hanna supposed to let these strangers into her daughter's life? Forced to question what being a parent really means, Hanna makes a drastic decision that will change all their lives. 

Produced by Papatango Theatre Company, Hanna premieres at the Arcola Theatre, London, in January 2018, before embarking on a UK tour.
