My Mother Told Me that I was Golden!

We're back from winter hibernation with a juicy, intimate show to offer you. Unfortunately it is just for one night, but one night of bliss is worth the trouble especially one night that will ward away any January blues!

So we shall pick up, from where we left off.......

After the success of our Summer 2010 production; 7:1 Beyond Control, which featured work by award winning writers such as Joel Horwood and Zoe Simon. This season we bring you three short plays from New York, Ireland and England. We challenged 3 writers: Bianca Sams, Hannah Burke and Terri-Ann Brumby to write a short play exploring mother and daughter relationships.

Mother Told Me....., unveils three gripping tales which reflect the valuable/invaluable advice of which a mother can give to their daughter, but what each tale portrays, is a story which questions the nature of loyalty, sanity and the explorations of love.


Hannah Burke: Hannah is pleased to present her third new piece for Golden Delilah. Last years contribution 'ERRIS' is now playing at the Black Box Theatre in Belfast. Hannah's work for 2010 includes an adaptation of Bulgakov's 'Master & Margarita' Edinburgh Festival & NO DOGS, The White Bear Theatre, London for FRAGMENTS and The Snow Queen & Ugly Roger for Stage Craft, Ireland. She has has just been commissioned to write a new play for East 15 Acting School based on the Berlin Wall.

Terri-Ann Brumby: Terri is an actress working in TV, Film and Theatre. In 2008 she was a winner of Sharps- BBC TV Drama Initiative. Her stage play The Benefit of Time has had successful runs in the NW and London and had just been commissioned by BBC Radio Drama. She is on the writing team at LA Productions (TV)

Bianca Sams: Bianca Sams is an Actor/Writer/Producer based in New York City. She is a graduate of New York University's Tisch School, where she earned the distinction of being Tisch's first ever Triple Major (Acting, Dramatic Writing, Africana Studies).

Comments referring to Golden Delilah productions from 2009 -2010

An intriguing and involving evening with three pieces of polished writing delivered with conviction and aplomb. Well-chosen and well-acted, you were convinced of the potential of each writer and were left wishing to see more!

I just saw Beyond Control at 503 tonight and thought it was excellent. Golden Delilah curated a really brilliant set of writers and a fantastic group of actors. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the evening.
