Contains some strong language, talk of suicide and depression.

A one-woman comedy musical about Post-Natal Depression.

Come and listen to some raucous cello songs; a sadistic therapist; a lewd clown (and a warm-hearted story-teller) as they shine a light on new motherhood and mental health in all its messy glory.

There’ll be tears and laughter in this uplifting show, that may change the way you listen to “Stay Another Day” forever.

Press & Reviews

Dan Bye, Theatre-Maker

Just because a show about post-natal depression is suprisingly funny doesn't stop it going to the dark places. If anything it's truer for the route it takes. 

Emma, Audience Member (The Dukes, Lancaster)

...saw your show tonight and I just wanted to tell you how much I loved it. It made me laugh and cry, in the very best way. 

Aliki Chappell, Theatre-Maker

...a witty, wise, vulnerable and very human show that made me mist up my glasses a bit.

George, Audience Member (Greenwich Theatre)

My friend and I were completely blown away - absolutely incredible...

Cast & Creative Team Performer: CHLOE BEZER

Chloe is a cellist and theatre-maker based in South East London. She has been making theatre since 2003 and playing the cello since 1983.
From 2005 to 2009 Chloe was Co-Artistic Director of Imprint Theatre Company with Dick Bonham (Little Mighty).

She performed on narrow boats, created (false) audio guides for gothic churches, staged public interventions in renovated city spaces and told ghost stories in theatres. For much of that time she was dressed as a clown.

In 2010 Chloe had a break to bring up her kids.

Since coming back to work in 2017, she has been gently easing her way back in with a show about post-natal depression (all the LOLs), some feminist musical museum banter about colonial Britain, a storytelling show (STOOPID) and a piece about Avocets.


The Container (Edinburgh Fringe, winner Fringe First and Amnesty International Award, Young Vic), Home Sweet Home (Freedom Studios, Albany and Arc), Brief Encounters at Bradford Interchange (Freedom Studios), WOKE (Little Mighty/Leeds Playhouse/Royal Exchange).

His work is dedicated to his mentor, Daisaku Ikeda.
