The smash-hit, sell out comedy Mum's the Word, starring Adéle King (Twink), portrays a passionate illustration of the joys and agonies of parenting. If you're a mother or father or even loosely related to one, this hysterically funny and poignant collection of issues will touch you in some way. Originally produced in Canada, the award-winning, theatrical phenomenon was written by six mothers and has received critical acclaim and attracted sell-out audiences throughout Australia and Canada and across Europe as well as resounding success at the 2001 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. It deals in shocking detail with all the important elements of childrearing with which those who are already parents will immediately identify, including every parent’s daily immersion in "bathwater, food, spit, snot, blood, vomit, urine and faeces". This is a brutally honest, wickedly funny and exceptionally touching play about parenting - and we've all put someone through it. Mum's the Word runs at The Tivoli Theatre, Dublin, until Saturday March 14th and at Cork's Everyman Palace Theatre from May 4th to 9th. See our theatre listings for more details
