Who Needs Sleep Anyway?

By Roger Hall and Pip Hall

28 MAY - 5 JUN 2008 — Comedy



Auckland Theatre Company


Sky City Theatre






With proud parents Polly and Paddy wrapped around his little fingers new born Baby-P takes his parents on a roller coaster ride through the first five years of life - and a Monty Pythonesque history of Plunket.
This is a must-see evening of light entertainment for new parents, grandparents and anyone who has had a baby.
Father, grandfather and New Zealand's best loved playwright, Roger Hall, joins forces with daughter Pip Hall for the first time to create this comedy celebration of 100 years of bringing up babies under the watchful eye of Plunket.
Kiwi funnyman Mark Hadlow puts on his bib to star as the lovable Baby P.
