The Wedding Speech
Rosemary is about to do a speech at her mother’s wedding. She’s not quite sure how to hit the right note as the relationship between Rosemary and her mother has been... less than rosy.
The Wedding Speech is a piece that speaks to the impact of the primary relationship on an individual, and the blind spots it can create in a seemingly self-aware person. A co-dependent parental bond can become normalised and it can take years to unpick and heal from.
Humans have brilliant coping strategies that serve them really well up until a point, but those strategies can sometimes become alienating, as suggested by the enclosed time and space setting of The Wedding Speech.
Rosemary loves her Mum, but is ready to break the cycle of toxic behaviour. What tools will she used to achieve her goals?
