Next Wave Festival (a world of creative discovery).

Writer, performer and queer-rights activist Annaliese Constable’s whip-sharp mind and deadpan delivery clash in all the right ways to present Mummy Dearest—a brutally honest take on parenting, childhood and what it’s like to have a mum who once tried to take a swig from a breathalyser.

Mummy Dearest is for anyone who was ever unparented, underparented, overparented or parentified. It’s for anyone who misses a parent—or wishes they missed a parent more. It’s for those of you who look at your kids and think: ‘I’ve made a huge mistake.’

Don’t miss this uncomfortably hilarious tragicomedy about families, addiction, mental illness and magpie attacks—topped off with an unforgettable bar fight, set to pokies music.
