Sons & Mothers
Written, devised and directed by Alirio Zavarce with and for the Men’s Ensemble of No Strings Attached
Sons and Mothers is a love letter to mums. Swelling with heart and
humour, six sons tell the stories of their mothers as they recount their lives from childhood to adulthood, and the stumbles and triumphs they encountered along the way.
These are love stories, made all the more potent because of the disabilities the men live with, and their humbling take on the discriminations they’ve faced.
Premiering at a sold-out season in the 2012 Adelaide Fringe, Sons and Mothers was awarded three coveted Fringe awards including Best Theatre Production. It is a celebration of one of life’s most intimate relationships.
The Sons on stage: Duncan Luke, Kym Mackenzie, Ryan Rowland,
Ricky Samai, Damien Turbin, Ben Wishart and Alirio Zavarce.
The Mothers on film: Rosemary Luke, Margaret Mackenzie, Sharn Rowland, Rosella Samai, Jane Turbin, Jill Wishart and Alicia Zavarce.

This show, of Festival quality, is most highly recommended. ★★★★★ Adelaide Theatre Guide
If you see one show at the Adelaide Fringe, make it this one. It's for anyone whose life has been touched by disability - and anybody who has a mother. Link Disability Magazine
Sons & Mothers is sure-footed compositional harmony and an upliftingly wonderful testimonial tribute to all good mums. 3ddd Radio, review by Gillian Hunter
