What is it?
I am very excited to be developing this one woman play alongside the amazing Emma Gersch and with the support of Watford Palace Theatre. We are in the development stages so watch this space…
What it's about...
Alyssa got pregnant, on purpose. She’s over the moon. She’s really trying to be over the moon. But she keeps thinking things that she shouldn’t think. Things like: Will anything be about me anymore? My life is about to be kidnapped by a baby…will I ever get it back?! Do I still get Christmas presents, or do people just buy them for the baby?!
‘Congratulations?’ Is a no holds barred, honest and hilarious trip into the mind of Mum to be. A one woman dark comedy, about the pressure to be perfect, smile and get on with it, when your life is about to explode.
