About the play
"I don't hate her. It's just... I told you, it's complicated."
Watching her daughter Ruby (Elle van Knoll) grow into a young adult, Susan (Hilary Tones) must find a way to forge their fragile relationship before it's too late. A typical relationship between a teenager and her mother quickly turns into more than meets the eye, as the past, and the men in their lives, keep finding a way to come between them. A touching play filled with mother-daughter explosions, unexpected turns, awkward sexual encounters, teenage confusion, and a great deal of love, new and old.
Mother, daughter, father or son, this hysterical and heart-breaking story about change, and facing the un-faceable will remind you how unconditional love conquers all, even as family are tap-dancing on your final nerve!
The hit show has received 5-star reviews from the likes of London pub theatres, London Theatre 1 and Sardines.
