Anna Morris hit forty, was single, childless and living back with her parents. Success! She hit a kid life crisis - like a mid-life crisis but with the added pressure of diminishing fertility. In this half hour stand up show, recorded in front of a remote audience, she looks at all the different ways in which women deal with ageing, dating and being childless - or child free. There's a difference in approach evident in just those two ways of describing women who don't have kids. From an 'incompetent cervix' diagnosis to proud but patronising new mothers, Anna Morris recounts her journey through the travails of a woman without children.
