Mother I (2) (2017)

10 August 2017 – 13 August 2017 @ Black Box, Goodman Arts Centre

Synopsis

The Mother I series is back. 

This time in Mother I (2), we bring you stories from mothers about their joy and pain as they bear witness to who their children have become or not, whether by choice or by circumstance. 

Do mothers feel blessed or stuck as they become pillars of strength and punchbags for tantrums? 

Supported at times, taken for granted most of the times, what is the life of mothers in today’s world?

Join us from 10th to 13th August 2017 at the Goodman Arts Centre Black Box for a journey that sits close in our hearts.

Cast: Catherine Ho, Grace KalaiSelvi, Hilmi Shukur
