Award-winning playwright Gareth Farr tells Fertility Road about his new play, which focuses on the journey of a young couple embarking on IVF treatment and he explains why art has a responsibility to shed light on difficult subjects like fertility.

They often say that life imitates art, but for playwright Gareth Farr the opposite is true. Drawing on his personal experience, his new play The Quiet House follows a young couple, Jess and Dylan who are deeply in love and long to start a family of their own: "It's passing on your thoughts, your personality, a part of yourself, your DNA. If we don't do that what are we? We're just dust." Eventually, the pair decide to pursue IVF treatment and the outcome is an honest and unflinching account of two people who refuse to give up on the children they so desperately long for. From the emotional turmoil, to the everyday realities of injecting hormones and balancing life and work with doctor's appointments, Farr was determined to represent the tens of thousands of people who undergo treatment every year in the UK alone.
