Racheal Ofori’s much lauded headline show of Calm Down Dear at the Camden People’s Theatre earlier this month, returns to London for one week at the Ovalhouse theatre 6-10 March 2018.
An exploration of motherhood and generational divides told through the eyes of a British Ghanaian woman, which asks what happens when we realise Mums don’t know best.
Told through the eyes of a British Ghanaian woman, So Many Reasons explores the unique influence our mothers have on how we understand the world. Inspired by the current cultural and generational shifts in women’s perspective of themselves and each other, this bold, passionate new show asks what happens when we realise mums don’t always know best.
So Many Reasons follows the success of Racheal’s debut show Portrait, which was performed at Calm Down Dear 2015, the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World and broadcast on the BBC. Both shows are produced by female-led Fuel.
So Many Reasons is the second recipient of a Jerwood Charitable Foundation Home Run commission, following Milk Presents’ Bullish in Autumn 2017. This award enables CPT to work with a company or artist towards a three-week run of a fully realised production at the theatre, supported with a £5,000 cash commission and free rehearsal space, as well as artistic, fundraising, marketing and business planning support.
