Five women, five stories, one common thread, a hilarious and intimate look at motherhood

The smash-hit, sell out, comedy starring Adéle King, Mum's the Word, portrays a passionate illustration of the joys and agonies of parenting. If you're a mother or father or even loosely related to one, this hysterically funny and poignant collection of issues will touch you in some way. Originally produced in Canada, the award-winning theatrical phenomenon was written by six mothers and has received critical acclaim and attracted sell-out audiences throughout Australia and Canada and across Europe, as well as resounding success at the 2001 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. It deals in shocking detail with all the important elements of childrearing with which those who are already parents will immediately identify, including every parent’s daily immersion in “bathwater, food, spit, snot, blood, vomit, urine, and faeces”. This is a brutally honest, wickedly funny, and exceptionally touching play about parenting — and we've all put someone through it. The show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets are available from €25 on as well as from The Royal box office on 0818 300 000. For further information check The Royal Theatre and Event Centre website on: or
