    MOTHERLOAD! is a dark comedy for the end of days. Meet Mother Nature, the sexiest woman alive turned dumpster fire. She's doing a TED Talk, a last chance bid to save her favourite creation. As the tech starts to glitch and her body gyrates with the FEVER of a morally confused echo chamber, she regurgitates our cultural trash into a lipsync of epic proportions. MOTHERLOAD! asks the question that every parent is thinking... should we? Winner of the Pulse Suitcase Prize and the Brighton Fringe International Touring Award 2022.

    "This is an hilarious hour of deeply moving comic theatre, masterfully written and performed to shine a light on the insanity of our behaviour as a species."
    British Theatre Guide
    "Totally engaging … powerful and often extremely moving."
    UK Theatre Network
    "Deep, catalytic ideas and a dizzyingly strong voice"
    EXEUNT
    "Bold, brash and bonkers... Like Bridget Jones on acid"
    The Student
    "It manages to embody a modern malaise in new and thought-provoking ways, and their reference to topical issues goes beneath the superficial"
    Broadway Baby on previous work

    "The seed commission has made me feel supported, not just as an artist but also a woman of colour whose story needs to be heard."
