Forty Weeks
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Jane extravagantly showers her son with love and affection on his birthday, giving him cake and presents galore. But all is not as it seems. Midnight Theatre and the University of Warwick present an abstract exploration into a mothers psyche, exposing the light and dark elements of the maternal mindset in an everyday, contemporary setting. Incorporating real-life testimony and research, Forty Weeks gives a haunting and original look at a tragedy intrinsically intertwined with modern motherhood. Winner of the Lord Rootes Memorial Fund Award.
