In the UK, there are around two million single parents. More than 9 out of 10 single parents are mothers.
But what is the reality of being a single mother? Funny, frank and authentic Muvvahood is a one-woman, verbatim theatre piece.
Crafted from hours of interviews it explores the emotional and economic issues surrounding single motherhood, created from the voices of single mothers living in London today.
There will be a chance to discuss the themes explored in Muvvahood on Friday 28th October in a post-show discussion with Libby Liburd after the evening performance.
Produced with support from Stratford Circus Arts Centre where Libby Liburd is an Associate Artist.
Relaxed Performance - Friday 28 October
We’re presenting the 1.30pm matinee as a relaxed performance so that people who might not be able to arrange childcare normally to go to the theatre can bring children along. This means babes in arms are welcome, lights will be low and parents can leave the auditorium if they need to.
We’ll also be providing a crèche for older children on a pay-what-you can basis. The crèche has limited numbers so you'll need to book in advance, there’s no charge to book but donations will be welcome on the day.
You'll be able to add tickets for the crèche to your order once you've added tickets to the matinee to your basket.
Why you should see it
"it’s not just a show for single mothers, it’s for anyone that ever felt like the underdog, anyone that ever felt that they were up against it, and still kept smiling"
