To the Moon and Back
To the Moon and Back was commissioned by Fertility Fest, the world’s first arts festival dedicated to fertility, infertility,
the science of making babies and modern families. Mother and daughter Anna Furse and Nina Klaff reflect on their experience of IVF with unflinching honesty.

Commissioned by Fertility Fest and Motherworks
Performed at the Barbican Centre (2019), Cambridge Junction (2019), and Bush Theatre (2018)
"Anna Furse and Nina Klaff reflect on the experience of IVF from two vastly different perspectives – one as the fertility patient, the other - the person born as a result of reproductive science.
With unflinching honesty, they reveal some of the hard and unspoken truths. As the story unfolds, it reveals their intensely close and complex relationship.
The artists were joined for a discussion and Q&A by Victoria Macdonald, Channel 4’s Health & Social Care Correspondent, and Ann Daniels, record-breaking polar explorer and mum of IVF triplets. Chaired by writer and journalist Jo Ind."
