Muvvahood – By Libby Liburd

MAUD

In the UK 1 in 4 families are headed by a single parent. That’s 2 million single parents in the UK alone. 91% of single parents are mothers

But what is a single mother actually like? We all know the stereotype: a teenager, wearing a tracksuit, smoking a fag, pushing a buggy, on her way to Lidl with her ASBO children that live off cheesy chips (and the taxpayer) and must be rescued by Jamie Oliver.

Funny, frank and authentic, Muvvahood is a one woman show, created from the voices of real single mothers living in London today. Part stand up, part TED talk and part verbatim, Libby Liburd explores exactly what is our problem with single mothers?

‘…a sharp, humorous and clever piece of political theatre’ – Views from the Gods ★★★★
