Event description

Description

Forked Theatre are travelling the UK gathering stories from women about 'motherhood'.

We go out to communities across the UK and chat to women from the local area in a good old fashioned "mother's meeting". From these tales, 5 local actors will then work together to craft a show and therefore provide women a platform to share their experiences in this raw, true, honest, anonymous storytelling showcase.

Newcastle is our next city and we are inviting the women of the North East to come, chat, share, discuss and engage with one another on the various approaches to and through motherhood (and any observations about our own mothers!) This session is open to all women of any age - mothers/grandmothers, single/married, gay/straight, natural conception/fertility treatment/adoption - we love to hear ALL journeys!

The plan is to get as many stories, from as many women from as many backgrounds as possible and eventually have travelled the whole of the UK and have a genuine representation of the one thing that stands us apart from our male counterparts; motherhood.

For transparency, please note that we do audio record all sessions so that we can be free to engage in conversation and we ask all attendees to sign a release form. There is an opt out that states the audio is not be used in the performance and if you change your mind about us using your story, then you reserve the right to withdraw your contribution at any time.
