Review by London Pub Theatres Magazine:

Post, an Edinburgh Preview that played for three nights at the Old Red Lion Theatre, is a piece of new writing that aims to debunk the stigma surrounding abortion. A two hander between Anna (Felicity Kay) a free spirit who finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, and her friend and doctor, Dr Hayes (Harriet Chomley). A well-intentioned and timely piece about women’s agency over their bodies, and the social pressure to conform to type, Post personalises the moral conundrum of abortion through two friends on different sides of the argument. Whilst Anna doesn’t feel ready to have a child, and isn’t even sure she wants one, Hayes discloses that she can’t have them, and this personal tragedy compromises her ability to offer Anna advice as either her friend or doctor.
