    So Many Reasons



    A story about the unique influence our mothers have on how we understand the world.

    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 new show asks what happens when we realise mums don’t always know best.

     

    So Many Reasons is created by Racheal Ofori. Ofori’s previous show Portrait was a critical success, touring extensively, appearing at the Southbank Centre (Women of the World Festival, 2015) and broadcast on BBC.

     

    Co-presented with Camden People's Theatre and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through the Home Run Commission. Funded by Arts Council England and the Leche Trust. Development supported by Ovalhouse.

     

    "It’s a smart and searching piece... a big achievement, boldly depicting the weight of cultural heritage amid the pressures of millennial experience and the quest for personal contentment." **** The Stage
