Also announced today, is a series of original commissions on the theme of parenthood and identity, to be presented after Everywoman: Confessions. Contributors include Robyn Addison and Jenny Worton performed by Addison on 17 February, Tinuke Craig on 18 February, Anna Jordan on 19 February, Hannah Khalil performed by Rendah Haywood on 20 February, Eve Leigh performed by Nadia Clifford on 21 February and Leo J Skilbeck performed by Griffyn Gilligan on 22 February.

During childbirth, there's a moment called the point of transition. It comes just before you have the urge to push. And it often brings with it a fear of death...

In raw detail, one woman confesses her darkest thoughts about motherhood. It's personal. But she challenges everyone to relate to what she has to say. Inspired by the 15th century play 'Everyman', Everywoman questions why is it that only stories with men at their hearts are seen as universal, and why have female writers throughout history chosen anonymity?

Everywoman is a deep and dirty dive into being a woman, and the threat to identity that motherhood presents.
