What would the world be like if we let ourselves be a bit more childish? In CHILD-ish, a dynamite cast of adult actors speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world. Instead of pretending to be children, they perform as adults, allowing us to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew. It’s surprising, hilarious and moving.

Originally a theatre play, CHILD-ish was created by Sunny Drake and drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart (and brutally honest) children. The special launch event on June 22nd gives you the full experience of our fresh new web series - through the perspectives of the brilliant kids from the CHILD-ish team, who will be your hosts alongside Sunny Drake himself.

Join the free virtual launch event on to watch all 4 episodes and meet the people who made them. Choose from 3 screenings (at 2pm, 7pm and 10pm Eastern Time), connect with other viewers in real time and… #BeMoreChildish.
