Rosemary is about to do a speech at her mother’s wedding. She’s not quite sure how to hit the right note as the relationship between Rosemary and her mother has been... less than rosy.
The Wedding Speech is a piece that speaks to the impact of the primary relationship on an individual, and the blind spots it can create in a seemingly self-aware person. A co-dependent parental bond can become normalised and it can take years to unpick and heal from.
Humans have brilliant coping strategies that serve them really well up until a point, but those strategies can sometimes become alienating, as suggested by the enclosed time and space setting of The Wedding Speech.
Rosemary loves her Mum, but is ready to break the cycle of toxic behaviour. What tools will she used to achieve her goals?
The Wedding Speech will also be touring to The Hope Theatre from 29th Nov - 3rd December then at Poplar Union from 27th - 28th January and The Vaults Network Theatre from 21st - 24th February 2023. Check back closer to the time for more details.
