Residency Dates: Wed 2 – Sun 6 Jan & Tue 7 – Fri 10 May 2019

The show is an intimate and absurd, one-person exploration of motherhood, exile and transformation. 

Part storytelling, part standup, part myth, it asks the question: How does an urban Canadian raising children in rural Kent, with declining parents back home, learn the codes of survival?
