CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Three very different mothers face three very different situations. This is a play about the joy and heartbreak of motherhood. Ali is a ballet dancer and then she gives birth to Flora. "Her blood sugarâs a bit low, she has a hole in her heart - we donât know how serious that is. Oh, and sheâs Downâs Syndrome." Milena struggles to survive with her children in a country torn by war. "They told us, if you want to see your children alive, do as we say". Kitty is a housewife who had two daughters, now it seems she only has one. "Maybe when she has her own children sheâll feel the pull, need to revisit where she came from. And Iâll be here. Because thatâs what mothers are, they are home...They are safety. The centre of it all, where it went wrong or right, the beginning and end". Three stories for today in which the human spirit is tested to the utmost and triumphs. Performers Ishia Bennison, Erin Brodie, Mairead Carty, Pippa Duffy, Esther Ruth Elliot, Sarah Gordy, Finnian Hanlon, Sarah Mowat.
