As Martha confronts the loss of her late husband Donald and the demise of his beloved car, Geoff, she is determined to void the creeping spectre of life as we know it. In a vein attempt to circumvent the inevitable, Martha's misadventures (before dementia) know no bounds, much to the chagrin of her largely docile and disbelieving family. Three rounds with a boxer called Brutus, a near disastrous adopt-an-addict campaign and a serious misadventure or two with druggy Steve are all set to get Martha into some serious pickle.


A cutting-edge comedy drama and the tale must be told. Written and directed by Artistic Director David Martin, this WIP story is a simple one - life is not a rehearsal. 


A breath-taking melodrama of one woman's journey into motherhood, life and death. From light-hearted to tragic, Molly must confront her demons and find her way to the very core of truth itself. What she finds is both shocking and uplifting in equal measures. 


The Ebbing Hour trilogy continues ~ part 3 Mother. Written and directed by David Martin and featuring Emma Smart in her first one woman show, Mother is a Work in Progress (WIP) that was originally destined for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2021, but is now being reshaped into a one woman touring production for the 22-23 season.
