Anne-Marie Piazza - Agatha


Anne-Marie Piazza is doing an R&D of Agatha at the Park Theatre.

Jo is in the car outside the abortion clinic. Mum is there too. Agatha’s not though. Agatha is dead, living out her dreams as the glamorous singer she always dreamt of being. Bertie’s in the ground where she promised to join him. Death was the divorce she always wanted.

As Jo begins to uncover the truth about her grandmother’s denied abortion in the 60s, she begins to question what contemplating motherhood means for her identity.

Brought alive by music and memory, Agatha explores post-natal depression, reluctant motherhood and the complexities of inherited trauma.
