Hidden Mother

Hidden Mother

In her mind Diana (Laura Louise Baker) is a glamorous singer-raconteuse at The Former Persons’ Club in Petrograd, and Leon (Polis Loizou) her accompanist. In reality the pair are patients in a British mental asylum heading for closure. When not singing traditional songs as showtunes or reminiscing about her life as a Russian aristocrat felled by the Revolution, Diana is forced through psychoanalysis to confront her real memories and scars from a life with an unstable mother. What will happen to this fragile human being when the doors of her only sanctuary look set to close forever? What of her friend and accompanist?

’Hidden Mother’ is a darkly funny drama about friendship and politics, madness and mothers – the latest piece of new writing by the award-winning The Off-Off-Off-Broadway Company.
