An unmissable new play from Olivier Award winning playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia, West-End) and the acclaimed Producers of Fleabag and Baby Reindeer.

Motherhood. No one can prepare you for it. No matter how much you tell yourself you can do it – can you? Where’s the rush of love? When will you sleep again?

What if the thing you fear most is also the thing you crave? All you wanted was one night of unbroken sleep, what have you done? Mum is a feverish journey through every parent’s worst nightmare.


Mum is a raw and real exploration of early motherhood. Includes occasional strong language and sensitive subject matter, including references to mental health issues, terminal illness, and the social care system. For more information please call the box office. 


Mum is directed by Abigail Graham and presented by Francesca Moody Productions, Soho Theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Popcorn Group.
