Summary

Daniel is a freelancer without health insurance or a committed relationship when he suddenly finds himself as the sole caregiver for his dangerously premature daughter. As he grapples with whether he will run from responsibility or grow into fatherhood, he befriends an outspoken neonatal intensive care unit nurse struggling to balance the demands of her job and her own family. Penned by playwright Mike Lew and directed by Moritz Von Stuelpnagel, tiny father explores the humorous truth about parenting and the fear that comes from an emotionally exhausting health scare.

Playwright Mike Lew was awarded a commission through the Audible Emerging Playwrights Fund, an initiative dedicated to developing innovative original plays driven by language and voice. As an Audible commissioned playwright, he received funding and creative support to develop tiny father.

NICU mom

My son was born at 29 weeks and spent four weeks in the NICU. He will be turning 25 this summer. There were events and emotions in this story that we lived. My son was able to pull out his ng tube faster than the nurses could get the tape to tape it down. Watching his bottle feedings, knowing they were the last thing keeping him there. The anxiety as we left that we were on our own.

But then, the glorious feeling of carrying him past the length of his monitoring wires as we made our way out of the NICU! Such a weight was lifted.

Great story

I stumbled on this accidentally. I wanted something short to listen to.
I was only 30 minutes into this listen when I wanted to stop and write a great review at that point. It had me laughing out loud in my kitchen. It was a pleasure to listen and the performers were fantastic. What great chemistry!
Please take the time to listen to just the first 15-30 minutes, I promise you will
be hook just as I was.

Great listen

Stumbled upon this book and I’m glad I did. Realistic feelings for a Father I’m sure. I like the educational statistical point about black mothers dying 4xs the rate of other mothers. The nurse was very informative, compassionate but real. The Fathers nervous wittiness was laugh out loud funny. Lol I’ll define searching more short stories like this.

A great listen!

I’m pretty sure that was the same William Jackson who played “Chidi” in the Good Place. He was excellent! This book production really gives voice the challenges and behind the scenes grief gone through by parents of premature babies.

Good, sweet, but realistic.

This was a good, short sweet story. I love how the dad stepped up to his responsibility and fell in love with his baby.

A very enlightening story of unawareness

I thought the story was very enlightening, I had no idea what preemie parent goes through both physically and emotional trauma. Day in and day out, the uncertainty of not knowing what's around the corner, the cost, your rights as a parent within the hospital system.

Enjoyed the book.

I went through the same thing with my child and my child was also born at 26 weeks, I enjoyed his story. Being a NICU Parent is a lot but it’s sucks that he had to go through it alone.
