WHERE’S YOUR MAMA GONE? is the story of the six year old twins whose mother was killed by a serial killer and were taken into care. At age sixteen, they leave the care home and begin to fend for themselves facing a life long battle of identity, repressed anger and lost love.
Playwright, Brian Daniels, was living in Leeds when in 1975 the ‘Yorkshire Ripper’ murdered his first victim, twenty-eight year old mother of four, Wilma McCann. It was through researching Wilma’s story and that of her children, that Brian was inspired to create WHERE’S YOUR MAMA GONE? – a fictional play based on the real events.
The play had a six week run at the Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds before transferring to the New End Theatre, Hampstead for a four week run in summer 2011. This new production will be its first revival and subsequent to the London run, the play will have a UK tour.
“The acting was just brilliant and I was very impressed with the entire production.” from a Professor at the Metropolitan University 7.5.15
“A very powerful piece. The actors did brilliantly.”Dr Jane Traies. 9.5.15
“A very worthy experience for those who know nothing of the care system and those who know it only too well”
