“Unique experience, what a lovely opportunity. Beautiful Setting – Sympathetic Workshop leader – just the right balance of guidance and letting us get on with talking ourselves. Thank you for an experience that I know will lead to a lot more communication with all my daughters.” Feedback from workshop


Just 3 questions to answer!!!! If you can ask your Mother/Daughter to take part too that would be gratefully received. However It would be really helpful if you could answer the questions too. I go into production the first 2 weeks in September.

What makes the relationship between mother and daughter?

Associate Artist and award winning actress Michele O’Brien shares her relationship with Gena in this funny, tender, heart-felt performance drawn from workshops across the area. This show is directed by Katherina Radeva who has brought ‘Near Gone’ to the Festival previously – which she describes as a ‘moving, challenging and edifying’ experience. Hear about some of Bournemouth’s famous and esteemed mothers, Lady Annie Russell-Cotes, Mary Shelley and her mother Mary Wollstonecraft in this memorable performance at Boscombe’s beautiful Shelley Theatre.
