Australian Premiere

Long-time friends Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed would often talk about their mothers and the complexities of living – and not living – with them. One mother is Cantonese-speaking and impetuous; the other speaks Malay and is quietly stubborn. Both are wonderful cooks.

With each performance (in 2006, 2009, 2015, and now 2016), Claire and Noorlinah revise the show. As they and their mothers grow older, new stories are added, while stories they were not ready to tell are now told in full.

Poignant and funny, Recalling Mother celebrates the joys and challenges of motherhood and daughterhood.

Performed in English with some Cantonese and Malay. Features surtitles.
