Parents-to-be Kurt and Martha just want the best for their baby.

They’re not afraid of hard work – the latest buggy doesn’t come cheap.

But when Kurt’s boss offers him a chance to make some easy money with a mysterious side job, his rashness catches up with him.

A fable about the moral and environmental cost of our materialistic nesting instincts, Conor McPherson’s powerful new version of Franz Xaver Kroetz’s Das Nest premiered at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, in 2016 and the Young Vic, London, directed by Ian Rickson.
