Popelei presents


Performed by Tamsin Hurtado Clarke Directed by Scarlett Plouviez

This is the story of a woman staring down the barrel of motherhood, torn between her own ambivalence…and an uncontrollable urge to push. A mischievous look at (un)maternal instinct, by one increasingly knocked-up performer.

Fresh from debuting at Edinburgh Fringe, award-winning Popelei present this fiercely funny solo show, interlaced with punchy choreography and an electrifying original soundtrack.


"An engaging, expressive performance...a show that captures the blizzard of feelings parents have for their as-yet-unborn children."

The Guardian

"A searingly honest feminist perspective... I’d go out of my way to catch Popelei’s next show."

Lyn Gardner, The Stage
