“My mother always said to Live Big. Live as much as I could.”
A startling theatrical triptych about three generations of mothers and daughters. For each woman, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy. A powerful, unflinching look at a family afflicted with severe depression and mental illness.
“I have Stayed. I have Stayed - I have Stayed for as long as I possibly can.”
The director of the Old Fitz's acclaimed 2016 production of The Whale returns with this radically experimental new play from award winning playwright and screenwriter, Alice Birch (Revolt. She said. Revolt again andLady Macbeth).
”Stunningly original.” - ★★★★★ - Mail On Sunday
“Birch has crafted a rich, haunting, technically dazzling script.” ★★★★★ - Time Out London
“Most productions require one viewing. Alice Birch’s spellbinding and serious new drama is worth three.” ★★★★★ - The Sunday Times
