Astor Theatre Perth says
Imagine all the love of a Celine power ballad, and all the snot and isolation of an Ebola outbreak.

This show’s kinda like that clip Beyonce did with Blue Ivy, only with more C-bombs, more references to extreme toilet paper usage, and no attempt whatsoever to hide marital difficulties.

From parenting in the 80’s to her hatred of the Disney Musical Frozen, The Motherload will leave no stone unturned, no relationship unexamined, no swear word unsworn.

Oh, and there will be a John Farnham sing-along. By God there will be a John Farnham sing-a-long. Accompanied by her long suffering Father Vincie, Em Rusciano will rip through your heart like herpes at a blue light disco. If you’ve had a Mother, then this show is for you.

Em is as prolific as she is popular. Her contributions to the small screen in shows like The Project, Please Like Me and Studio 10; the internet with her off-the-chain social media reach; and writing for everyone from TV Week to the Huffington Post, MamaMia and weekly column for news.com.au have garnered her a huge cult following with numbers in excess of 160,000. Em’s weekly reach via social media often exceeds three million, and her blog posts generate so much traffic her website often crashes. Em Rusciano IS the Motherload.


What critics have said about The Motherload in 2015:

“Em Rusciano is an irrepressible force of nature.” Rip it up

“Eccentric and energetic” – Scenestr

“All the wit, warmth and charisma in the world.” – Herald Sun

“Spectacularly funny.” – Perth Culture

“Anyone who has ever secretly wanted to throw something at a child will get something out of this show” – Aussie Theatre
