A play by one of Britain's best-selling writers

"Set in the year 2001 where the class system is numbered from one to five and only the upperclasses are allowed to breed, Ten Tiny Fingers, Nine Tiny Toes is about the births of a perfect but illegal 'class five' baby, and an imperfect 'government' baby bought by a 'class three' mother and exterminated at birth because of her nine toes...compulsive viewing...insanity is served up as commen sense - to sinister effect." Kate Kellaway, Observer
