A meditation on motherhood, Hendon’s writing is first class in this surprising, shocking and heart wrenching monologue, brought to life theatrically by director Paula Chitty and actress, Elizabeth George.
A finalist at The Kenneth Branagh Award in 2017 where it was hailed a triumph.
Sardines Magazine - A Triumph, someone sat behind me and said we should have stood to applaud and I agree. It’s impossible to untangle the roles of writer, director and actor in achieving the outcome but that’s what great theatre is all about, the structure is overlaid with beautiful dialogue.
**** The Review Hub - The evening’s most horrific story comes with an almighty emotional punch that carefully side steps the sentimental and explores the effect of a shock tragedy on a single mother.
**** Younger Theatre - A tale of love and loss and all that comes with it.
**** Theatre box - A Harrowing piece about motherhood, shock, grief, mundane joys, degradation and celebrations that motherhood entails
