Me, Mum & The Patriarchy - a play

Doncaster, 2018.

It’s moving day, join Keeley as she packs away her memories into boxes. Come in for a cuppa and give her a hand. As she packs up her plates and boxes up her treasures, she journeys back through her family history. Me, Mum & The Patriarchy is a witty one woman show that looks at the choices we make and explores whether women really can have it all. 

This one woman performance portrays three generations of Northern women in a moving, hilarious and poignant journey.
