Muvvahood

Written and performed by Libby Liburd

Directed by Julie Addy 

  • 1 in 4 families in the UK are single parent families 
  • That's 2 million single parents in the UK alone 
  • 91% of single parents are mothers 
 
But what is a single mother actually like?

We all know the stereotype: a teenager, wearing a tracksuit, smoking a fag, pushing a buggy, on her way to Lidl with her ASBO children that live off cheesy chips and must be rescued by Jamie Oliver. Funny, frank and authentic, Muvvahood is a one woman show, created from the voices of single mothers living in London today.

Part stand up, part TED talk and part verbatim, Libby Liburd explores exactly what is our problem with single mothers?
 
After the 8pm performances there will be a discussion surrounding the themes raised in the show. Special guests to be announced
