About Monday’s Child

Monday’s Child is a fully designed and staged performance production enriched by participatory workshops and educational resource material. We captured the show over 2 public performances for our archive purposes. But we thought it might be fun to share this beautiful show with our audience too, to help us celebrate the launch of our Crowdfunder page!

The 45-minute show tells a simple and poetic story of the unique bond between an old woman and a little girl. Together in a dream-like garden, they sing, play, dance and dress up as they joyously explore a treasure trove of memories. Original, inspirational and culturally rich, the production is a magical mix of movement, music and beautiful design.

The story explores how people learn, remember, grow older and cope with the challenges of recall and retention. Brendan Murray, the multi-award-winning writer of Monday’s Child, found his initial inspiration from a colleague whose mother-in-law had Alzheimer’s – as a result, Brendan became interested in the relationship between different generations as memory changes with age.
