Breeders: Tamzin Outhwaite, Angela Griffin, Jemima Rooper and Nicholas Burns

We dropped in on a rehearsal for ''Breeders'', a new play by Ben Ockrent, to chat to the cast and find out how they are getting on.

Angela Griffin plays Caroline, who wants to start a family with her wife Andrea, played by Tamzin Outhwaite. In their quest to have a child that shares both of their DNA, Andrea seeks her brother Jimmy's (Nicholas Burns) help. Tensions mount as Jimmy and girlfriend Sharon (Jemima Rooper) discuss the implications.

Directed by Tamara Harvey, Breeders is inspired by Ockrent's real-life experience and offers a new perspective on how and why we make babies.
