This is the story of a woman staring down the barrel of motherhood, torn between her own ambivalence... and an uncontrollable urge to push. A mischievous look at (un)maternal instinct, by one increasingly knocked-up performer. Multi award-winning Popelei return to Edinburgh with the world premiere of this fiercely funny solo show, interlaced with punchy choreography and an electrifying original soundtrack. Praise for PUSH previews: 'An engaging, expressive performance... as dynamic as its title suggests' (Guardian). 'A searingly honest feminist perspective... I'd go out of my way to catch Popelei's next show' (Lyn Gardner).
