⭐ MUM – WORLD PREMIERE OF NEW PLAY BY MORGAN LLOYD MALCOLM – CAST ANNOUNCED ⭐
Casting has been announced for world premiere of MUM, the new play by Olivier award-winning playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm.
Joining the cast are Sophie Melville (Herding Cats), Denise Black (Coronation Street, Queer as Folk) and Cat Simmons (Come From Away, The Lady in the Van).
This unmissable world premiere is a collaboration between Francesca Moody Productions (original producer of Fleabag) and writer Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (whose hit show Emilia won three Olivier Awards in 2020 and whose new punk musical play Typical Girls premieres at Sheffield Crucible this September).
This thought-provoking, funny and honest new play shines a light on early motherhood, anxiety and mental health. MUM examines the pressures, neuroses and complex emotions many women experience when they have a baby. At a time when mothers have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic, never has it been more pertinent to explore these issues.
MUM is written by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, directed by Abigail Graham, the associate director is TD Moyo, set and costume is designed by Sarah Beaton, lighting by Sally Ferguson, sound by Anna Clock and movement by Annie-Lunette Deakin-Foster.
MUM will run at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 30th September – 16th October before transferring to Soho Theatre from 20th October – 20th November 2021.
Brilliant! ! !
