Secret Life of a Mother

By Hannah Moscovitch With Maev Beaty and Anne-Marie Kerr

Paperback £23.99

The raw and untold secrets of pregnancy, miscarriage, childbirth and mothering are revealed in this true story of motherhood for the twenty-first century.

A playwright writes an exposé of modern motherhood, full of her own darkly funny confessions and taboo-breaking truths. One of her real-life friends, an actress, performs the piece, and through it her own experiences of motherhood start to surface. These mothers are not the butts of jokes, the villains, or the perfect angels of a household.

This empowered and relatable play was written collaboratively between award-winning theatre artists Hannah Moscovitch, Maev Beaty, and Ann-Marie Kerr, with co-creator Marinda de Beer. Uplifting and full of love, Secret Life of a Mother is a generous and powerful act of truth-telling for anyone who has thought about, been, loved, known—or come from—a mother.
