Mother Tongues


Mothers. We all come from one. Whether we knew her or not. Whether she was who we wanted her to be or someone completely different. She was human. And so are we. In Mother Tongues, six women take the stage to explore the language and voices of who we came from and the lasting impact of both having and being a mother. Difficult, funny, raw and real, theses stories flip the myth of the Good Mother.
