MUVVAHOOD is a one woman, verbatim show. It’s researched, developed, written and performed by Libby Liburd, and directed by Julie Addy.
In the UK there are around 2 million single parents. The vast majority – more than 9 out of 10 single parents – are mothers. Libby is one of them.
Funny, frank and authentic, collated from hours of interviews with single mothers, MUVVAHOOD explores the specific emotional and economic realities of being a woman raising your children alone in London today.
“Affecting…a stark reminder that, as well as being subject to cultural and implicit discrimination, women still face explicit material and institutional discrimination in housing and welfare” Exeunt Magazine (scratch showing 2015)
The first work-in-progress performance of MUVVAHOOD is at Camden People’s Theatre on Sunday 13th March at 6pm, part of the Sprint 16 Festival.
A second performance is at the Tristan Bates Theatre on Monday 11th April at 7pm as part of their First Festival of Solo Performances.
