A playful and poignant performance letter to a future child from their future father. 

The law changes all the time. A continuous catalogue of amendments, acts, and appeals, and just one more signature on yet another piece of paper.

But, in 2019 there was a shift, the law in the UK changed dramatically… to allow for single father surrogacy.

With videography by Ben Horrigan for Studio 91 Media and music composed by BAFTA and Academy Award winner Chris Benstead (Gravity, The Gentleman, No Time to Die), Wayne Steven Jackson’s From Me to Us is an important project that provides the space for discussions about parenthood, whilst documenting political change against a backdrop of autobiographical experiences.

‘A powerful piece of performance art… emotive and beautifully written’
★★★★ Mobile Theatre

Supported by Arts Council England, Contact, hAb, Word of Warning and Brilliant Beginnings.
