A rehearsed reading of the play took place in June 2022 as part of the 10th annual TALAWA FIRSTS new writing festival.
A heavily pregnant, thirty-something woman is in labour in the middle of a global pandemic. Too scared to go to the hospital in Lockdown London, she’s decided to have the ‘perfect’ homebirth with nothing but a birthing ball and a Fleabag boxset to get her through it. Plans are derailed when her ex turns up and refuses to leave. As her labour progresses and with the midwife unreachable, the pair are forced to confront the remnants of their relationship and their breakup before everything changes forever with the arrival of their child.

“Thought-provoking, engaging… An intimate play for an intimate venue; McIntosh deserves to play to a full house every day.” ★★★★★ BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS
“[The play sets up] fascinating questions and conflicts … Layla’s final statement that she’s now “a different person, but not in the way you think” both subtly undermines the cliché of fairytale weddings and the misconception that there are simple solutions to complex issues.” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN
“Dominoes felt new, it felt progressive … at the spearhead of contemporary dialogues driven by young people determined to deal with history in a new way.” ★★★★★ ED FRINGE REVIEW
