Important information:

This show contains strong language. Please note that there is a babes in arms on all performance, Wednesday 7th August is specifically designed as a Parent and Baby Performance

A solo show – six different women, one thing in common. Inspired by society's expectations and the pressures on women to be maternal, kind, considerate individuals.

There is one thing these women share, they are all pregnant, however they rarely refer to this – but do we as an audience judge them differently because of their impending motherhood?

This series of talking heads style monologues will make you laugh and cringe as we share a glimpse into these women's daily lives, warts and all.

'Perhaps inspired by Alan Bennett's monologues, Pointing's writing is funny and true' **** (Scotsman)
