Event Details

MOTHERLOAD! is a dark comedy for the end of days.

Meet Mother Nature, the sexiest woman alive turned dumpster fire. She’s doing a TED Talk, a last chance bid to save her favourite creation. As the tech starts to glitch and her body gyrates with the FEVER of a morally confused echo chamber, she regurgitates our cultural trash into a lipsync of epic proportions. MOTHERLOAD! asks the question that every parent is thinking … should we? Winner of the Pulse Suitcase Prize and the Brighton Fringe International Touring Award.

The show is playing at Summerhall on August 3-14 at 7:30pm, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Urban Foxes Collective

Urban Foxes Collective are a devising theatre company who make bold, urgent and comedic work. We are looking for ways to better understand ourselves, each other and the often confusing world we exist in.Our work is personal, political, highly theatrical and always aims to entertain. Through female eyes we create performance in response to the world now, what we are driven by and whatever gets stuck in our heads and we can’t stop talking about.
