Mudders

A show about motherhood for 8+ and certainly also for mothers and fathers and everyone who knows one or has one.

You will be facing 4 women.
Mothers.
Mudders actually.
While diligently running the office, these cheerful women muddle themselves to an early grave. 
Wholeheartedly they show you how shaky a mother’s mind can be, how big her ideals and how constant her failure. 
But they will persist! Everything’s fine! Everything under control! 
Till the bitter end, they keep rising from the biggest mess and saving themselves from the chaos that surrounds them. 
And all of that for you. 
That is, if you’re coming. 
We’d like you to. 
Really. Sincerely. Promised. And if mom makes a promise, she tries to stick to it. Honestly true.

In MUDDERS we play with the stress that motherhood brings along. Having to arrange everything, to keep everything under control while the pots are boiling over. Like an artist in the Chinese State Circus who has to keep all saucers spinning on a stick, knowing that one will smash anyhow. For the mothers on stage, everything is a shaky balance.

Although the mothers from MUDDERS muddled a bit, the do it in style. And preferably all in the same style. All equally blond, all the same size. Because why change size when you can change yourself as well?

At the end of the day, it’s still easier to bring up children than to bring down your weight.
