“A Must-See. Nattrass’s brilliant one-woman show hits hard and opens the audience to the inner world of deep pain in the midst of heart-aching baby love”


Mamahood: Bursting into Light is a witty and profoundly moving ode to motherhood written & performed by Nicolle Nattrass. A mother, a playwright (PGC), and an actress (CAEA), Jessie Award-nominated Nicolle Nattrass shares her story with humor. She courageously shares her struggle to be a “PERFECT Mom”, the shock of being labelled an “Older Parent”, to confronting the endless choices of parenthood, the pain of sleep deprivation, along with the heartache and joy of her own post-partum experience.


“Brilliant! Nicolle Nattrass is a wonderful storyteller and fantastic character actor who nails the serious and comedic characters with ease and gusto. The topic of the realities of being a new mother are rarely talked about on stage or in public and that makes this show not only super entertaining but necessary. You will love the rock n’ roll ride of Mamahood. Do yourself, and everyone mother you know, a favour and go see this show!” Toronto’s SOULO Theatre Festival.


There will be a talk-back after the performance with guests from our community as well as Sheila Duffy, Pacific Post Partum Support Society.

Warning: This show is not suitable for children. Strong language & Mature content.
