They call me Mum. Everyone calls me Mum now. Or Mummy. I had a name before. Where did that go?

Inspired by true events, Katie Guicciardi’s Fox is a brutally honest and amusing exploration of new motherhood in an increasingly isolating society. A sharply observed drama that examines our complex relationship with ‘help’ – our desire to give it and the need to seek it for ourselves. 

This “small but perfectly formed” play (Telegraph) is “a brave, eye-opening show” (What’s On Stage).

First produced at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019, Fox was praised for being “a really poignant and insightful piece” (Three Weeks) and “deep, mature, and nuanced. A must-see.” (Feminist Fringe). Directed by Offie Award nominee, Lisa Cagnacci (Associate Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough), Fox is “a compelling monologue [which] rings relatably true to life” (Telegraph).

Running time: 60 mins

Age guidance: 14+ (For baby-friendly performances, we recommend coming along with pre-walking babies)

Content warning: The play explores sensitive themes of postnatal depression and includes mentions of baby loss. The content of the show is for adults so the performance is not suitable for babies over 18 months.

This performance is specifically for grown ups to bring along their non-walking babies. There will be a baby friendly set up for seating and it’ll be a relaxed performance so you can care for all your baby’s needs during the show. We would also love for you to stay for a play and chat sessions after the show.
