A RashDash and HOME co-production, co-commissioned by Soho Theatre, Tobacco Factory Theatres and MAYK

Oh Mother rashdash “rash dash”

devised & performed by RashDash Tue 19 Jul – Sat 13 Aug 22 85 minutes
This show is a fever dream made in the heat of the love, the exhaustion and the chaos.

It’s for our friends, our parents, our partners, our babies and for any of you that are making a family.

Family means everything you want it to mean.

What a transformative thing it can be to take care of someone else, completely. How it rearranges you. How you might yearn to do it. How you will definitely yearn for a break.

It is relentless. Diabolical. Wonderful. Hilarious. Necessary.

Following the award-winning Three Sisters, RashDash and their mums explore having and becoming mothers.
