[Sophie] Melville brings impressive whirlwind physicality to the study of psychological disintegration, by rapid turns squatting and arching to simulate birth, fighting off invisible enemies, frantically clambering upwards.

An exceptionally raw performance from young Welsh actress Sophie Melville. Lloyd Malcolm’s script is an odd mixture of the nuanced and the obvious. Overall 'Mum' remains a bracing experience.

Lloyd Malcolm daringly switches tone, from comic to manic, and jumbles time, so that, in Abigail Graham’s unnerving staging, we would be wary of swearing to events in court. Though only 60 minutes, the play is, dramatically and sociologically, a power hour.
