About the piece

Three remarkable women at different times in history but each on the verge of motherhood, find connection through the traditional ballad songs passed down their family tree.

These songs have travelled across lands and oceans, from Scotland, through Northern Ireland and into the Appalachian mountains. And in modern-day New York, Sarah's rediscovery of these songs and the family stories embedded within them, help guide her through events and decisions that have the potential to change her life forever. 

A new musical featuring a contemporary folk score and a cast of actor-musicians.

★★★★

"Hugely impressive in its exploration of complex themes...

A musical of considerable depth and power.

A Mother's Song is a beautiful and deeply personal work of theatre that is thoroughly rewarding"

 Broadway Baby

★★★★

"A Mother’s Song is a sharp and deeply-felt exploration of several women gazing into the future of motherhood in all its implications...

This is an important show which deserves to be developed further’ "
