Advice taken and ignored, tellings off, pep talks and tales of her past. We were always scared of sounding just like her but maybe she was right about some things.
Part gig, part their mums' living rooms, Bonnie and The Bonnettes delve into motherhood, womanhood and femininity through conversations with their mums, armed with three microphones, music, and a bottle of prosecco.
They are a tribe of women that have shown us the way and it's time to celebrate, so put on a buffet and crack open the bubbly because they are our mums and it's about time we chanted it.Book Now
Bonnie and The Bonnettes was founded in 2016 and are a theatre company based in the North East. Our work is sometimes about us, sometimes about other people, but mostly about the world we live in.
We like it when audiences laugh. We like it when they think. We really like it when they do both at the same time.
Our work is loud, fun, and unapologetic.
