About EGTG presents All About My Mother

All About My Mother
A play by Samuel Adamson, based on the film by Pedro Almodovar

"To all actresses who have played actresses. To all women who act. To men who act and become women. To all the people who want to be mothers."
Pedro Almodovar, to the audience of All About My Mother

Spain, 1999.
In Barcelona, Manuela makes a new life for herself after the death of her son, working on a stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire. She is reunited with an old transgender friend, Agrado, who she finds working as a prostitute, and makes new friends in the shape of Rosa, a terminally ill young nun, and Huma Rojo, the famous and formidable grand dame stage actress whom her late son idolised.
As Manuela rebuilds her life in a new city with a new job and new friends, her son's estranged father returns to her life with tragic and life changing consequences for them all.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for EGTG presents All About My Mother are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
