Exuberant, life-affirming fun, Mom’s the Word 2: Unhinged reunites the creators of the hugely successful international smash Mom’s the Word – a hilariously funny look at life with baby. Now the babies have grown up and, ‘older and wider,’ Alison Kelly, Robin Nichol, Jill Daum, Barbara Pollard and Deborah Williams have created theatrical magic again.

Mom’s the Word 2: Unhinged is a riotous exposé of the highs and lows of life with a teenager! Combining outrageously funny skits and personal anecdotes with a few brazen musical numbers, this hilarious new play entertains and delights with its mix of side-splitting humour, irreverent home-truths, mid-life madness and some truly poignant vignettes – about breast cancer, or coping with your teen’s drug addiction, or taking your daughter to buy her first bra – that are breathtakingly honest. You don’t have to have a teenager to relate – you just have to have been one!
