Pleasance

Admin

This is the story of a woman staring down the barrel of motherhood, torn between her own ambivalence... and an uncontrollable urge to push. A mischievous look at (un)maternal instinct, by one increasingly knocked-up performer. Multi award-winning Popelei return to Edinburgh with the world premiere of this fiercely funny solo show, interlaced with punchy choreography and an electrifying original soundtrack. Praise for PUSH previews: 'An engaging, expressive performance... as dynamic as its title suggests' (Guardian). 'A searingly honest feminist perspective... I'd go out of my way to catch Popelei's next show' (Lyn Gardner).

Edinburgh interview: Tamsin Hurtado Clarke on Push at Pleasance Courtyard

"I'm most looking forward to the performing element, being pregnant is going to be an interesting one. It's every actor's dream to perform their show every day, and that's why the Fringe is so fantastic."

Greg Stewart, Theatre Weekly, 1st August 2022

Interview: Tamsin Hurtado Clarke - Push

Push is about the ongoing impossibility of deciding what you want to be when you grow up - a parent, not a parent, just like your mother, the complete opposite of your mother, a dancer, a lover, an astronaut.
