Part of our Vault Festival Transfer Season
Betrayed by family, sectioned and lactating, Ann and her new-born have been detained without trial on a medieval plague island. This is the world of Ann’s mind. Imaginatively staged, with elements of stand-up comedy, a dynamic original sound design and original music, after birth is a story of hope.
“A powerhouse story told with clarity, wit and integrity.”
Winner of the North Wall Oxford’s Propeller Award, this dark new comedy is rooted in the recovery stories of the resilient, funny women who experienced psychosis after the birth of their babies and fearlessly shared their stories with us.
“So privileged to host the premiere of #AfterBirth @byZenaForster – we can’t wait to see where this brilliant, life-affirming new play goes next.”
