Created and performed by Karen Logan and Kasia Vosloo and directed by Iain EWOK Robinson, Dear Breeder comes to the Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban next weekend. It’s described as a “kid’s show” about adults (not for kids)!

Dear Breeder follows three uniquely insane instantly-recognizable mothers (all played by Karen Logan), drawn together by the Peter Rabbit Pre-Primary School’s end of year Nativity play. Through the musical lens of the recently “preggers” drama teacher, Ms Du Bois, (Kasia Vosloo) the audience is taken on a strangely familiar journey as the mothers rant, rampage, and reconcile their way to producing an original Nativity play.

Beset with dramas (Angel Gabriel peeing on baby Jesus, two Wise Men and a four year-old feminist), the journey towards the Christmas show mirrors the roller-coaster ride that is being a parent, causing Ms Du Bois to wonder what exactly this whole breeding thing is all about.

Dear Breeder was first performed at the 2014 PANSA Musho! Theatre Festival of One and Two Person Theatre where it won two awards: The Suliman Selection and The Audience Runner-up Award (sponsored by Going Places SA)
