Nine Foot Nine

30 June, 2019


What would happen if most self-identifying women across the world grew to be nine foot tall? 

Cara and Nate are a hard-working young couple looking to start a family. They’re bumbling through the daunting world of pregnancy tests, maternity clothes and flat-pack cot-building, all the while trying to come to grips with having to create an actual human person. That is, until suddenly, inexplicably, a vast proportion of all the women in the world start to grow.

The Company


Sleepless Theatre Company strives to ethically produce bold, concept-driven work that cherishes the relationship between performers and audience. We dare, we make mistakes and we exist in that glorious, muddling crossover between intense ambition and logistical feasibility.

We always ask the question: How can we enable the environment we provide to be suitable for everyone? This applies to everyone from the artists with who we work to audience members who come to watch the theatre we create. We aim to offer an inclusive, accessible environment for all – not only enabling everyone to create, work on or watch our theatre, but also to make them feel welcome.
