Tiff Stevenson brings her 2019 critically acclaimed solo show ‘Mother’ to venues across the UK later this year. The show premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s Monkey Barrell last August before heading to the USA for several sell-out shows in Los Angeles, New York & San Francisco. The tour starts on 4th September in Aldershot’s West End Centre and culminates on 6th December at Coventry Warwick Arts Centre.
Mother’ is a show about the extreme sport of being a woman. Tiff takes us through conception to delivery on topics such as step parenting, class, reproductive rights, Heisenbergs Uncertainty Principle, men under general anaesthetic and political top trumping. Within it all she seeks the nuance, with as usual a few characters along the way Ben Fogle, Joanna Lumley, The Queen and girls with vocal fry. She delivers the personal, the political and the passionate always and without the help of an epidural!
Three years ago her satirical character Bridget Trump went viral and she appeared in Entertainment Magazine, People Magazine, Comedy Central and Mashable (for which she is now a regular contributor). In 2018 Tiff’s pro-choice piece for The Guardian’s “A moment that changed me” received overwhelming response online and received global media coverage.
