WOW: Drawing on a (Grand) Mother’s Experience at London Southbank in 2020

Bobby Baker’s critically acclaimed performance, Drawing on a (Grand) Mother’s Experience, returns to WOW – Women of the World festival at the Southbank in 2020, for WOW’s tenth anniversary!

In 2015, WOW festival founder, Jude Kelly, invited Bobby Baker to re-stage her seminal 1988 work Drawing on a Mother’s Experience. By then a grandmother, and as dedicated a feminist as ever, Baker chose to instead bring it up to date, creating the sell-out Drawing on a (Grand) Mother’s Experience.

This powerfully affecting and hilarious show explores the experience of early motherhood from an older and more reflective vantage point, whilst considering the challenge of combining motherhood with the drive to retain autonomy.
