EASTENDERS star Cheryl Fergison leads the cast as hit comedy sketch show Mum's the Word returns to theatres this autumn. 

Fergison, known for her role as Heather Trott in Eastenders, is joined by actresses Sarita Plowman and Poppy Tierney, as they take audiences on an emotional journey through the ups and downs of motherhood.

After the tremendous success of its 2022 tour, Mum’s the Word is back with a perfect mix of original comical sketches and fresh hilarious heartwarming stories that are too embarrassing and personal to share even with one's closest friends.

From leaving the house without a bra to shedding tears in supermarket aisles for no apparent reason, these women will leave you in stitches as they candidly portray the joys and challenges of bringing new life into the world—and occasionally misplacing it!

Producer Anna Anikeyeva, herself a new mum, expressed her overwhelming emotion and gratitude towards the show.

She said: "As a new mum, this show has left me filled with joy and a sense of camaraderie. It is everything I didn't know me and my new mum friends needed.

"In Mum's the Word, no subject is taboo, and no thought too private.

"The brave and hilarious women on stage fearlessly delve into the intricacies of motherhood, sharing experiences both good and bad, insights, and lessons learned along the way.

"This show not only entertains but also enlightens, reminding both women and men that this too is just another ‘phase’.

"Grab your tickets and prepare to be thoroughly entertained. Mum's the Word promises an unforgettable night of laughter, camaraderie, and celebration of the beautiful chaos that is motherhood."

Mum's the Word is at the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton on Friday, October 6 2023. Doors: 7.30pm. Tickets from: floralpavilion.com
