Description

Have you got mummy issues too? So do Pat and Emilia, migrant theatre-makers working on a play about two siblings unpacking their childhood emotional damage (aka post-Soviet parenting). This ‘intimate’ and ‘witty’ **** (BingeFringe.com) meta-theatre production explores the removal of moral judgment from the tangled mass of generational trauma… and the absolute chaos of creating autobiographical performances.
