Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details

Synopsis


Jane and Sophie were just kids when their mum walked out.


Now, thirty years on, she reappears as they struggle with issues of their own.


In confronting the legacy of her leaving, and in searching for a way to move forward, all three women have to face difficult truths.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: 18+


This is a powerful new play exploring the most significant identity change of all for a woman - becoming a mother.


It won Sue Bevan the last Drama Association of Wales International One Act Play Competition, and this new full-length version takes a more nuanced look at the impact of motherhood on three generations of women in one family.


One in five UK women suffer postnatal mental health issues.


Here we see the impact it can have.
