In the Motherhood
Nita and Bonnie run the PTA in their charming village with brutal efficiency. Their enterprising and sometimes shocking approach to fundraising exploits the deep frustrations and struggles of being a mum, with highly lucrative results. Into this world of competitive parenting drops Jacs, a savvy city type who’s looking to make an impression. But this PTA doesn’t let just anyone in. You have to earn the right to join the committee. Has Jacs got what it takes to assume her place in the parental pecking order or will the feathers fly? In The Motherhood is a new play by Hayley Pepler, begun when she was a participant in the REP’s Write Away scheme for emerging playwrights in 2013. Since then, her script for The Shadow of Ingestre Hall has already received a nomination for Best Drama at the Royal Television Society (Midlands) Awards.
