A Post-punk, post-natal, descent story.

Pregnant Clown descends to a post-natal underworld. Her baby is born not breathing. Emergency punk ritual, D.I.Y birth rite – this is the story you’re not supposed to tell. The Dirty Mother is a high energy clown comedy, where a real woman tells her real story of loss and reinvention in the nappy shit of life.

The Dirty Mother will host a free open rehearsal from 11am to 1pm on Thursday 1 August. This is an opportunity for mothers to attend (with or without their children), to observe and share their experiences and to contribute to a writing a scene in the performance called How To Silence A Woman. For more information or to RSVP to the open rehearsal, please contact Michelle Hall here.

As part of the Ground Up program in Winter Nights 2019
