DateSaturday 27th April 2019 to Sunday 12th May 2019
DescriptionMaxine Peake stars in this adaptation of Julia Leigh's book, which follows the emotionally-powerful journey one woman takes through IVF treatment, directed by Anne-Louise Sarks. When a woman rekindles an early love in her late 30's her whole life changes. Deciding they want a child together, she and her new husband make a visit to the IVF clinic. So begins a long and costly journey of medical procedures, nightly injections, rituals and the oscillation between high hopes and the depths of despair. Avalanche lays bare the stark truth of her experience against the seductive promises made by the multi-billion-dollar IVF industry to those in the grip of a 'snow-blind' yearning to make a baby. But at the heart of this dramatisation is an exploration of who we are and how we love; inspired by a true story, it is a courageous account of a profoundly important and widespread experience.
