Presented by Edith Tankus

Its a full moon.  I pay the sitter and see her out.  I undo my bra and pace back and forth trying to get more air in my lungs.  Then without warning, I let out a sound from somewhere deep. It keeps coming and I cant stop it, I stick my face in the rubbish bin so I dont wake up the boys and howl and howl and howl and howl.    

An intimate and absurd one-person exploration of motherhood, exile and transformation.  Part storytelling, part standup, part myth, it asks the question: How does an urban Canadian raising children in rural Kent with declining parents back home learn the codes of survival?

Supported by Arts Council England,  BAC, Arts Depot, Folkestone Quarterhouse and CPT.

Stick around after the show on Saturday 25th April for a free curated conversation about identity, parenthood, the light and dark moments of life. Led by Edith Tankus and Annie Broadbent www.anniebroadbent.com
