The mother-child relationship, which, for so many people, is the paradigm for all relationships to come, is profoundly felt, highly complicated and genuinely multi-faceted

Mombo explores this unique relationship through nine short plays, each of which examines the reality of this relationship but also leap off into wholly unexpected imaginings of the lengths to which mothers and children will travel to make each other crazy ...

Two soccer moms experience the agonies and ecstasies of competitive sports

An expectant nurse learns important lessons from the mother of a hospital patient

A mother gets stoned with her aging rocker son

A young woman executive meets her match in the robot mom prototype she has developed

A nagging mother is totally undone by a son who's become a mime

In turn wildly comic, poignant, tender and wry, these nine plays will make audiences reflect on and reconsider their own relationships with their mothers and their children in a truly universal and eminently accessible theatre experience
