'The Kid Thing' tackles how pregnancy changes the bonds between partners and friends.

Many couples have confronted the same fundamental question of whether or not they really want kids. The answers often involve pondering major life and possible personality changes. One such Q & A session is at the heart of a new play, The Kid Thing, a co-production of Chicago Dramatists and About Face Theatre. But Eight Forty-Eight had other questions too; like – does the play work?  Are central characters, Leigh and Darcy, believable? For answesr to those questions and no doubt more, Eight Forty-Eight turned to the Dueling Critics, Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman.

The Kid Thing, runs at Chicago Dramatists through Oct. 16th.
