My Mum said to me

‘…if you ever have children, don’t have girls.

They give you too much of a headache.’

So Many Reasons is a story about the unique influence our mothers have on how we understand the world, from the perspective of a first generation British Ghanaian woman. Exploring cultural and generational shifts in how women see themselves and each other, this sassy and soulful show asks what happens when we realise mums don’t always know best.
