Bonnie and The Bonnettes
Advice taken and ignored, tellings off, pep talks, and tales of her past. We were always scared of sounding just like her but maybe she was right about some things.
They are a tribe of women that have shown us the way and it’s time to celebrate so put on a buffet and crack open the bubbly because they are our Mum’s and it’s about time we chant it.
Bonnie and The Bonnettes are a theatre company based in Newcastle and make work that is sometimes about them, sometimes about other people but mostly about the world we live in. They like it when audiences laugh. They like it when they think. They like it when they do both at the same time.
