We've Got So Much To Talk About
By Sally Stockwell
‘We’ve Got So Much To Talk About’ is a contemporary theatre gig that takes an unbridled ride through the chaotic world of motherhood with rock ‘n roll songs, stories and a Vegas showgirl thrown in for good measure. Set in a dream world of backstage tour cases, tangled cables, and hanging microphones. Sally Stockwell navigates the live wire mess of parenting with mesmerising vocals, a looping pedal and her body. This solo show touches the jagged edges of early motherhood with honesty, humour and the beating heart of love and validation.
Fresh from its 2022 debut theatre season and the Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Fest, 'We've Got So Much To Talk About' will appeal to all those who are a mother, know a mother, or have a mother.
Made with the support of Creative New Zealand and the Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Fest.
“We’ve Got So Much To Talk About’ is a defiant cry, is catharsis, is a manifesto, is a release.....Each personal memory shared onstage gestures to the hopes, fears, and stifling expectations women the world over carry.....Possessing a fantastic singing voice, Stockwell ranges from Siouxsie Sioux strength to Grimes otherworldliness...Release the soundtrack’”
