Priscilla Queen of the Disaster, a true-story-show about surviving motherhood is coming to Theatre Brycheiniog on the 8th March.

Susie, a mother of two boys shares her hilarious story of becoming a Mum, not knowing what she is doing and how she makes it through each day of parenting these two boys with no instructions.

Susie said: "Priscilla is my story all about motherhood, the real story, not the curated version online, the best bits, the worst bits, the struggles, the pressure, the guilt, and the joy. It’s a comedy about the predicaments we find ourselves in as mothers and it’s also an honest account on how isolating it can be, how life changing it is and how there is no preparation for it."

Promising a night full of laughs and emotion, Susie told The Brecon & Radnor Express: "It’s a story about overcoming obstacles, about connection and about the importance of sharing the truth about our stories to feel less alone. We will laugh and cry together and come away having taken some time for ourselves to recognise that life can be really hard and also find the comedy in those moments which in turn builds our resilience in them."

The inspiration of the show came from when Susie became a mother and saw other mothers sharing their experiences that were different to hers.

"I didn’t see anyone who was being honest about the birth, who was struggling to cope with the massive change, who lost their patience, who never quite felt enough for their kids," said Susie.

"I knew I loved my kids; I knew I was incredibly privileged to have them, and I was and remain incredibly grateful for them, but I also didn’t know that I could feel all those things and find it all really hard.

"I started to write about it, initially just for me, then as a blog. With a nudge from some people I work with in a theatre, I built the show with the help of some incredible people. I wanted people to laugh at the absurdity of it all, because I know acknowledging that helps me cope, laughing at the struggles is my best coping strategy."

At the end of the show there is a post-show discussion with Susie and the audience.

"We all chat, about the story and I answer any questions people may have and I listen to other people’s stories. There are some heavier themes to some parts of the show in terms of mental health and the discussion allows us all a moment to process it all, any things which may have come up for the audience member and should they need anything else, like continued support I can connect and then either help myself or point them in the direction of resources which could help," said Susie.
