A mischievous look at the existential crisis of motherhood - award-winning Popelei (Manuelita) return to take you on an exhilarating journey through the guilt and the glory of one woman going her own way
So what do you do when you’ve made the brilliant decision NOT to have children and then, at age 35, you find yourself pregnant? Answers on a postcard, please. A mischievous look at the existential crisis of motherhood. Award-winning Popelei return to the stage to take you on an exhilarating journey through the guilt and the glory of one woman going her own way. Featuring blisteringly honest confessions, vibrant dance theatre and one extremely knocked up performer.
“A performance as dynamic as its title suggests… That captures the blizzard of feelings parents have for their as-yet-unborn children.”
“A hilarious, moving, tragic and heart-warming piece of theatre…one not to be missed.”
★★★★★ Three Weeks on Manuelita
“A wonderful, warm performance that will have you leaving on a high.”
