RashDash hit London with a show which has already had audiences talking and debating during its pre-London dates. It marks a new departure for the company whose fierce, enquiring and often cheeky feminism now turns its beady eyes on motherhood. Everybody in the company has had a baby over the last couple of years and as the company told me in a recent interview, that has informed the making of the piece. It’s the start of a lively summer season at Soho Theatre which next month continues with Follow the Signs, a new fully BSL-integrated hip-hop musical, David Hoyle’s Ten Commandments and Not Your Circus Dog’s punk crip cabaret, Not F**king Sorry. That’s before hitting the Autumn running with a post Edinburgh run for Haley McGee’s Age is a Feeling. McGee’s The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale was such a sly delight I’m looking forward to this one.

About Oh Mother

It’s for our friends, our parents, our partners, our babies and for any of you that are making a family. Family means everything you want it to mean. What a transformative thing it can be to take care of someone else, completely. How it rearranges you. How you might yearn to do it. How you will definitely yearn for a break. It is relentless. Diabolical. Wonderful. Hilarious. Necessary. Following the award-winning Three Sisters, RashDash and their mums explore having and becoming mothers.
