Mama is a staggering debut production by the upcoming Cardiff-based theatre company,TectonigTheatre. Set during a brunch, the play follows Mama on her journey navigating being a first-time mum and dares to shed light onto the unspoken sides of motherhood.
As Mama’s attention drifts during the brunch, we watch her thoughts go on a tangent into memory and daydream and it’s these stories that reveal the fragments of her real-life as a mother. ‘Mama’ is a present- day unveiling of the struggle with adopting a new identity and celebrates the humanness of motherhood in all its often-ridiculous, messy honesty
and its oh-so-tired glory.
