The World Premiere of All About My Mother was staged as the opening show of the Old Vic's 2007/08 season in a co-production with Neal Street Productions. It played for a limited 14 week run to great critical acclaim.


All About My Mother is a passionate hymn to the strength and spirit of women; a kaleidoscopic drama embracing motherhood, love and desire; a homage to the great Hollywood movies.
