Three M’others

Written by Antonia Mackay Directed by Laura Higgins

“It’s all so… pixelated. Me, the baby, my family, the doctors… my ‘motherhood’”   

A play about the Covid-19 pandemic, first-time motherhood, and what happened when we took all the people away.  

Written by academic Antonia Mackay, as part of her research into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on new mothers, this unique play offers an insight into the up till now, invisible effects of the digitisation of maternal healthcare. Performed by Oxford Brookes University Drama students and based on research with mothers who gave birth during 2020 and 2021, Three M’others affords a glimpse into the real, lived experiences of women as they embarked on their maternal journeys in the face of a global pandemic.  

A compassionate, sometimes funny and moving view of motherhood, Three M’others is the real story of women’s experiences during lockdown. 

Funded by the Sheila Kitzinger Programme at Green Templeton College and created in collaboration with Human Story Theatre. 

Age guidance: 14+ (& babes in arms for the matinee)
