Thursday matinee added due to popular demand!

Pram Talk is a timely, authentic and entertaining dramatic monologue about losing your mind and finding your feet.

Dancer turned teacher, the complex Bronte has pressure coming at her from all sides: her mum with her (un)helpful news clippings about parenting, her boss who seems to be trying to get rid of her, her mental health team chasing her up about medication and an unopened letter that threatens to unravel everything she is working towards. 

Meanwhile, the soundtrack of her youth reminds Bronte of her old life of fun, bringing back memories of her best friend who she hasn’t spoken to in a while. Can Bronte live up to the social media image of new motherhood? Can she forge new friendships and rebuild old ones? Can she learn to be happy again amid the overwhelming rage, worry and responsibility of this new life?

As uplifting as it is enlightening, Bronte’s moving and intelligent story is told with wit and humour, whilst confronting some of the big issues facing women and m/others in the UK today.

‘Does it ever get better?’
‘That’s why you called her Hope, isn’t it?’

Pram Talk is one of the chosen pieces for the RSC’s 37 Plays Project.
