PUSH: The Film

A hell of a lot can happen in the time you await the results of a pregnancy test.

This is the story of a woman staring down the barrel of motherhood, torn between her own ambivalence... and an uncontrollable urge to push.

Award-winning Popelei burst out of isolation and onto your screens with their darkly comic theatre production, reimagined for film. Blistering honesty, exhilarating choreography, and one extremely knocked-up performer.

"An engaging, expressive performance... a show that captures the blizzard of feelings parents have for their as-yet-unborn children" (Guardian)

"An exceptional piece of new writing" (ThePlaysTheThingUK.com)
