EVENT - 11 & 12 November


Mama Stitch is a storytelling experience, celebrating Mums for all their imperfections, challenges and triumphs. Mama Stitch, featuring performer-actor Georgia King, performer-musician Mark Storen and musicians Holly Garvey and Tom Garvey, is a heart-warming and intimate experience that everyone can relate to. Stories about mums are collected by Whiskey & Boots from the people in the area where the show is being based, distilled and brought to life as headphone verbatim performance.Each story is underscored with an original musical response, inspired by the stories shared. Audiences are invited to have a hot cup of tea and a slice of toast, with homemade jam as they listen to stories and music, reflecting on the mothers of the local community. At the end of the performance, audiences can contribute to the project by writing their own anonymous ‘Dear Mum’ letter to be displayed in the space.‘Our relationships with our mums is probably has the biggest influence on who we become as people,’ Georgia King said. ‘While there are shows about the experience of being a mum, there aren’t many shows exploring the experience of being mothered, which is surprising given how much material is there that is funny, tragic, frustrating and very relatable. So we created Mama Stitch.’ ‘Given the separation thrust upon many families by border closures and the needs of public health, now – more than ever – works like this remind us of the strength of histories, families and the affirmative power of storytelling,’Friday & Saturday 11 & 12 November 2022 I 7:00pmAdults $40.00 | Concession/Students (12yrs+) $35.00 | Child (2-12yrs) $20.00 | Transaction Fee $5 will applyFor Accessible and Companion Card bookings please call 91589 323 (Mon-Thurs 9am-4pm)Suitable for all ages 15+Duration: 60 minutes – no intervalGallery Doors Open: 6.00pm  Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy freshly baked bread, jam, tea & live music.Show Starts: 7.00pm Please note: A Cash Bar will be available on site, Free Tea & Coffee available.
