Since Patrick is gone I’ve become a little creative in childcare and going out schemes, which really means I try to find more family-friendly night time activities and I drag Aine. One such event was Futurity – a musical at the Walker. We walked in (8pm on a Friday) and Aine asks – Why are there no other kids here? I mean there aren’t even any 19 year olds.

Well, because she is much cooler than most kids and the reward was a very fun steam punk show. Here’s the description of the story from the website

As the Civil War rages around him, Union soldier Julian Munro and Lord Byron’s brilliant daughter, Ada Lovelace, attempt to invent an omnipotent steam-powered brain designed to save humanity before it destroys itself. Featuring up-and-coming Brooklyn indie-rock band the Lisps, this quirky new music-theater piece melds traditional Americana, Brechtian choral elements, and avant-rock, resulting in a unique and compelling portrait of war, human imagination, and technological hubris.
