Cracking, three-part audio play by Alright Mate? co-founder Cally Hayes about love, loss and parenthood. Cracking takes an intimate look from a father’s perspective about what happens when you survive the worst but now risk losing everything. ​​​​​​​
Credits: Directed by Kevin Johnson, written by Cally Hayes, performed by Georgia Robinson and Tom Bowdler, edited by Hugh McCann. Supported by DadPad.

The audio play was debuted at this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Sciences on November 7th and was followed by a live web based panel discussion on father’s perinatal mental health and the culture(s) that surround it. The panel was organised with University of Warwick and the panellists included; Cally Hayes (Cracking writer); Hugh McCann (Alright Mate? CIC); Julian Bose (DadPad); Amelie Foster (expert by experience); Nikhwat Marawat (The Delicate Mind CIC); Dr Emma Langley (University of Warwick); Jodie Dowse (Bluebell Care); Dr Mark Pulsford (University of Warwick, panel Chair).
