Synopsis
No Strings Attached creates original theatre through the unique perspectives of its performers living with a disability.  Written and directed by Alirio Zavarce in collaboration with the performers, Sons & Mothers is a humorous and poignant look into the lives of six men and their relationships with their mothers.

Of the Sons involved, three live at home with their mothers, one lives independently but relies on his mother daily, and two have lost their mothers.  The Sons – Kym Mackenzie, Duncan Luke, Ryan Rowland, Richard Samai, Damien Turbin and Ben Wishart – create intimate and authentic portraits of their experiences with their mothers.

With heart and humour, these six sons tell stories of their mums as they draw or dance or sing their lives, complete with stumbles and triumphs.  These are love stories made all the more potent because of disabilities the men live with and their humble takes on discriminations they’ve faced.

Premiering at the 2012 Adelaide Fringe Festival, Sons & Mothers not only sold out their 16 performance run, but also took out top Fringe awards including ‘Best Theatre Production’ and ‘Best in Fringe.’  Sons & Mothers is quality drama that comes from the heart.  Its truth and simplicity are disarming.  It will touch everyone who sees it.

‘If you see one show at the Adelaide Fringe, make it this one.  It’s for anyone whose life has been touched by disability – and anybody who has a mother.’ Link Disability Magazine

‘Sons & Mothers is authentic, honest and alive.’ Dianne Reid, Adelaide Fringe Review

‘This eloquent and tender engagement, at times very funny and always sincere, is another triumph for No Strings Attached.’ The Advertiser
