Three women, two children, one story Set in present day Senegal, Bavaria and post WW2 Sudentenland, Three Mothers immerses the audience in the personal lives and the dilemmas facing its three female characters.

The story follows their lives as they attempt to make difficult decisions that will change their lives forever. Enforced migration and refugee status are the backdrop to this inspiring, uplifting and intertwined story spanning a time-frame of 60 years, of women’s determination to carry on and create a new life.

When KHADY’s husband dies, she is forced to sell his goats. Sending her eldest son away from Senegal across desert and sea to Europe, in the hope thathe will find a better life, she plunges her entire family into uncertainty.

When GISELA’s life in England is turned upside down, she goes home to Bavaria seeking comfort and familiarity. But her attempts to assist the steady flow of refugees arriving in her childhood village soon awaken memories from her own past.

After being expelled from Sudetenland in 1945, ERIKA reveals the truth about the journey made on foot with her baby daughter.

The production is an amalgamation of verbatim research, original text and physical theatre, written, directed, designed and performed by an all-female team. An original score has been created by composer David Ridley.
