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).
