Audience members have said…..
‘Thank you for speaking the truth of the challenges of motherhood – with love, compassion and wisdom, so eloquently and beautifully.’
‘Moving, compassionate, heart-warming and provoking. I left with the feeling that the entire audience had been on the same journey with me.’
‘This show has the power to touch people and heal families. Thank you so much for being brave enough to share your story’
This is a universal story which considers one woman’s search for a richer understanding of her concept of perfection and what it means to accept imperfection in order to connect more deeply to her female line.
The show examines the often complex relationship between mothers and daughters and the challenge of discovering you may have more in common with your female ancestors than you care to admit.
Here we take a look in the mirror of five generations of women in one family, beginning with Danyah’s Great-Grandmother.
Created in celebration of International Women’s Day 2017
