WHY WE PUBLISHED THE SHOW

Childproof is an unproduced TV sitcom written by Tony Martin and Sarina Rowell. It was performed live at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe over three nights and then released ias a podcast.

It concerns those controversial types, the ‘childfree by choice’. They've been called ‘selfish’, ‘immature’, ‘unfulfilled’ and even ‘unAustralian’ – by their own families! Out of step with a world that exalts the traditional family unit above all else, Ian and Jennifer are also battling extinction in their workplaces – commercial radio and book publishing.

The cast included Tony Martin, Geraldine Quinn, Roz Hammond, Andrew McClelland, Damian Cowell, Cristina Laria, Djovan Caro and Lachy Hulme, alongside narrator Jay Mueller and a gaggle of guests.
