First Fortnight Festival 2019
Wed 2 – Sat 5 Jan | 7:30pm + 2:30pm on 3 – 5 Jan | Main Space
Sally Denver Matthews, our favourite Sleep Deprived Mother, is back!
Sally + Stephen + 2 bottles of Malbec = Heidi.
Heidi has only been around for 6 months, but she is already in charge.
Sally adores her new baby, but she misses her old life when she only had herself to worry about.
Her new life as a mother is overwhelming and it feels like there’s no time to talk to Stephen.
At least Sally still gets to see her friends (in photos) and still gets to wash her hair (but not condition it).
Mum, mam, madre, mutter, moeder… whatever you go by, it’s the most difficult job you’ll ever have!
This time she wants new parents to hear her story without having to book a babysitter, so she’s saying: B.Y.O.B. – Bring Your Own Baby – to the ‘Mammy Matinees’. Your baby can cry and make as much noise as (s)he wants – no one will tut or glare at you! Dads/guardians are welcome too – ‘Daddy Matinees’ just didn’t have the same ring to it!
No baby? No problem! Come to an evening show instead!
Written and performed by Gilly O Shea.
