    Rosemary is about to do a speech at her mother’s wedding. She’s not quite sure how to hit the right note as the relationship between Rosemary and her mother has been... less than rosy.

    A co-dependent parental bond can become normalised and take years to unpick. Rosemary loves her Mum but she's ready to break the cycle of toxic behaviour. What tools will she used to achieve her goals?

    The Wedding Speech is a "wildly relatable" and "poignant" piece which speaks to the impact of the primary relationship on an individual, and the blind spots it can create in a seemingly self-aware person.

    Supported by Arts Council England.

    "A very poignant play. Wildly relatable"
