An improvised play exploring the magic and misery of motherhood.
Mothers is an improvised play exploring the magic and misery of motherhood. Featuring the true personal stories of mothers, daughters of mothers, sons of mothers and friends of mothers this show has been hailed as "a beautiful example of social, cultural and emotional catharsis through theater".
Mothers is part of our Spontaneous Showcase, where five experienced directors present their work with a cast of festival participants brought together for one night only. Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With these incredible improvisors and directors from all around New Zealand (and the world!), you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.
