A new musical The Good Enough Mums Club, conceived, produced, directed and performed by mothers who have all returned to work in the arts after having children, is at the Waterloo East Theatre, in south London, from 29 May to 9 June 2013.
It is written by Emily Beecher and Sally Samad with music by Chris Passey and Amy Carroll. Directed by Charlotte Conquest, designed by Ryan Laight, choreography by Drew McOnie, costumes by Imogen Loveday-Brown, sound by Matt Eaton, and produced by Good Enough Productions.
Cast includes Emily Beecher (Aimee), Sally Samad (Jenn), Lucy Russell (Pam), Megan Whelan (Esme), Jade Samuels (Flo).
Toddles through the highs, lows and sleep deprivation of five women who are thrown together by motherhood. With enough wet wipes on hand to mop away the tears and clean away the snotty laughter, they overcome their isolation, loneliness, judgment and desire for perfection to discover that they are stronger as a group than as individuals and that sometimes, being good enough, is best. From peeing on sticks to drooping tits, The Good Enough Mums Club shares the love and dispels the myths of motherhood
