Mother and the Monster

How long can you keep a secret?

Charlotte White is a retired prop-maker who once worked with some of Hollywood's greatest legends. Her sudden disappearance from the world of film has been much discussed but the truth has never been revealed...can a young journalist change that?

When Charlotte agrees to an interview, she is hoping she'll be able to keep the details of her history private. But a voice from the cupboard keeps telling her to finally tell the world the truth.

“A funny and poignant piece of theatre”


“Certainly set[s] the bar high…incredibly quick witted”

-The Student

A witty, engaging show, perfect for those who love to peek at what goes on behind the scenes of great movies. Mother and the Monster gives a voice to those who are often shunned to the back, and gives teeth to some who were robbed of their chance to shine.

First performed in 2017, the story of Mother and the Monster has only gained in relevance as we examine how women are treated in our great cultural institutions and whose stories get told.
