“I see you strong, I see you spinning on your own axis - full of life - full of joy.
I see you like me when I turned 18 - unfiltered - ready to conquer the world head held high - heart strong - I see you growing everyday.”
Michelle and Ruby look like any other mother and daughter.
They dance together, they sing together, fight with each other and hide from each other.
But as it approaches Ruby's birthday, Michelle wonders if perhaps she has been too hidden.
Inspired and informed by women who have lived through the criminal justice system, Somalia Seaton's latest play, I'd Rather Go Blind, is a tender exploration of what it takes to be a mother in a world that is closing in around you.
Background, advisory warnings
Age suitability: 14+
I'd Rather Go Blind is produced in celebration of the extraordinary women Futures Theatre and Somalia Seaton worked with throughout 2017.
