If you could ask your mother one question about her life, what would it be? What is the most important thing a mother can pass on to her daughter?

In Like Mother, Like Daughter four pairs of mothers and daughters ask each other questions: about their lives, about the world, and about growing up as - and bringing up - daughters. At the end of the performance, the audience is invited to join them for dinner.

Created and performed by mothers and daughters from Cork and the surrounding area, the show is an unscripted conversation between women of different generations, cultures and religions, and explores the traditions we inherit and what we pass on.
