Last Show: Sunday 14 th January 2024

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Written by West End actress and singer Cathy McManamom, Single Irish Sober Stage Mum is a delightful cabaret which delves into Cathy’s life as an Irish Champion Dancer before having her soon to be teenager. It is also takes a deadpan look through the eyes of a now sober Irish woman who grew up in the famous Irish music pub The Favourite, reminiscing on her life on the road that she happily gave up upon becoming pregnant at her old age, just like her mother before her. The show is illustrated by songs about motherhood from films and musicals and features some wonderful special guests.
