Description of the Show: Lizbeth always thought that she would be the perfect parent and her child would be the perfect child because she would do everything right. When her son goes to playschool she discovers that no matter what you do, your child can have issues. Her husband Brendan struggles to support her because he can’t relate to her parenting style. When other parents at the playschool behave badly, she leans on her friend Tamra who inadvertently betrays her. It’s about realizing that there is no such thing as a perfect parent – that all you can really be is the right parent for your child.
Venue: Walterdale (you have no idea how happy we are to be ‘at home’!)
