A “must-see” evening’s entertainment for new parents, grandparents and anyone who’s ever been a baby - book the babysitter now!

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.

From ante-natal classes to anti-immunisation campaigns WHO NEEDS SLEEP ANYWAY? touches on the trials and tribulations, the joys and delights of parenthood and champions the role Plunket has played in our lives.

In turns hilarious, wonderful and emotional - rather like parenthood really – WHO NEEDS SLEEP ANYWAY? careers from the phenomenal success of Truby King’s ”humanised milk” to the stress of potty training as Baby P takes you through the first few years of life from baby’s perspective!

Kiwi funnyman Mark Hadlow puts on his bib to star as the lovable Baby P.

"Hall has consistently demonstrated a sure fire instinct for pleasing his audience"
