Amy’s making a play. It’s an experiment. It’s about Motherhood.
Amy Golding is an award-winning theatre-maker whose work has been seen across the UK and in South Africa. As Artistic Director of Curious Monkey, Amy makes shows from real stories, told to her by real people. Now she’s making her own story. It’s about the before, the now, and the ‘what might be’.
Motherhood – what does it really mean for women now and for women of previous generations? Women like Amy’s mum, whose unconventional approach to family life was captured by a 1979 BBC documentary team. And Amy’s nan, who had her child just before the birth of the NHS.Amy explores the highs and lows, the heart swells and heartbreaks on the journey to create a new life. Playful, touching and provocative preggers is a show about family – being in one and starting one of your own.
preggers was originally produced and toured in June / July 2016.
