SONS & Mothers hits the UK in 2017

2017 has started in full force for SONS & Mothers as it commences the first of a series of screenings in the United Kingdom.

With thanks to Carousel who run the Oska Bright Film Festival we will be trickling across the country with our first stop in Brighton.

“Carousel helps learning disabled artists develop and manage their creative lives, true to their voice and vision, challenging expectations of what great art is and who can create it.”

Their Oska Bright Film Festival is testimony to that. In 2015 we were so proud to open their film festival. It was not long after that we were approached for a national tour.

“We were so proud to be a part of the uniquely powerful Oska Bright Film Festival in 2015,” said Director Christopher Houghton.

“We’re even more proud that they are supporting a series of screenings through 2017 that will see the travel to audiences across the UK.”

For all those who have been asking where can I see SONS & mothers? We are pleased to say we finally have an answer.

SONS & mothers the stage show and documentary are hitting the highway in 2014. From August to October you can catch the Men’s Ensemble of No Strings Attached on stage and on the big screen as Performing Lines takes it on a regional tour of Australia.

“It was great to hear that audiences around Australia will be seeing this amazing and heartfelt play,” says Producer Louise Pascale. “And to be able to see the documentary too is a great bonus for audiences. They get to not only see the show, but how it came together.”

In the documentary audiences are also able to meet the member of the Men’s Ensemble who did not make it to the stage, and find out why.

The Regional Tour will kick off at the Darwin Festival in August and go to Mandurah, Perth, Kalgoorlie, The Gold Coast, Queanbeyan, Wagga Wagga, Wangaratta, Orange, Bathurst, Hobart, Bendigo, Portland before winding up in Renmark and Port Pirie.
