THE SPORT OF MY MAD MOTHER by Ann Jellicoe

Category

A play about the rootless youth in the jungle of the modern city, which marked an important step in the movement initiated by Beckett with Waiting for Godot. Set in a cockney neighborhood of London, it combines realism, mysticism, music, dance, and ritual to create a powerful, feminist myth about modern civilization.

First performed in 1958 at the Royal Court Theatre starring Anthony Valentine and Wendy Craig it received a hostile reaction from audience and critics alike.
