    'Mummy, what did you want to be when you grew up?'

    Unpopular Culture is a funny and honest exploration of parenthood, exploring how to have realistic expectations for ourselves and our kids in an unequal, sometimes unkind world.

    How do we encourage our children to follow their dreams, if we found it difficult to truly follow our own?  

    How will they cope being a part of many cultures without belonging to any? 

    Does a lack of representation make us feel unworthy? How do we avoid passing that feeling to our kids?

    Some serious questions are asked against a fun backdrop of song and dance: it’s theatre meets Mumsnet.

    "Hilarious, timely and eye-opening work..."

    “Keep up the good work producing cutting-edge theatre for everyone in London”
