    My Mum said to me 'if you ever have children, don't have girls. They give you too much of a headache. "

    So Many Reasons is a story about the unique influence our mothers have on how we understand the world, from the perspective of a first generation British Ghanaian woman. Exploring cultural and generational shifts, religion and sexuality, this bold new show asks what happens when we realise mums don't always know best.

    Co-presented with Camden People's Theatre and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through the Home Run Commission. Funded by Arts Council England and the Leche Trust. Development supported by Ovalhouse.

    ""Ofori's show is a big achievement, boldly depicting the weight of cultural heritage amid the pressures of millennial experience and the quest for personal contentment"

    "Our children live in the most deprived ward in London and their parents cannot afford to pay for the classes and activities many more privileged children enjoy after school and at the weekends. A free-to-access youth group run by a local theatre in a professional setting is an incredible opportunity."
