Mama Love

Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre


Mama Love is a one-woman show in which Lea Blair Whitcher plays with the absurdities of the idealised and toxic images of motherhood in which she finds herself enmeshed. Against the backdrop of the 2020 Swiss vote on granting new fathers a whole two weeks' paternity leave (18 years behind the Brits' oh-so generous offer), Whitcher links lived experience with current discourses on motherhood, thrashing out a path through a jungle of everyday situations, social clichés and quizzical utopian models of life in a society beyond the bounds of patriarchy.
