The future of genetic engineering is here. The DNA of your child can be altered even before its life has begun. But how far should we go? How far would you go?

From the pioneering studio Ben Fredericks Collaborations, ‘Choosing Children’ puts you face to face with some of the most urgent and challenging questions of our time and asks you to choose.

Spectacular and otherworldly, ‘Choosing Children’ blends theatre and digital projections to create a truly immersive experience. Accessible by design, this new interactive show asks you to play a role and discover the impact this new technology will have on humanity’s future.

Enter this new theatrical experience and decide the future you want.

What are ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets?

We believe that that arts should be accessible for all. For this reason some of our shows and events this year will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra.

You will see multiple prices available for each show or event. You can select whichever price you can afford or would like to pay – thank you.
