For The Love Of A Primary Caregiver is a piece that speaks to the impact of the primary relationship, and the blind spots it can create in even the most self-aware of us. A co-dependent parental bond can become normalised and it can take years to unpick. I wanted to paint a portrait of someone striving to be better despite the hardship that they perceive. Cheryl’s motivation for writing the piece stems from her own self-development journey and from her work as a coach. Understanding how humans have brilliant coping strategies that serve us really well up until a point, but those coping strategies can sometimes alienate us, because we can decide to move through the world defensively.
“Such a crucial part of the UK theatre ecology… Developing artists and audiences”
