First look rehearsal images have been released for the new UK tour of seeds, starring Judith Jacob (Dark Heart, ITV; The Five, Sky One) alongside Penny Layden (Belgravia, ITV; Macbeth, National Theatre). Two mothers united in sorrow, unable to escape the tragedy of knife crime, try to protect their sons – one in life, and one in death.
On Michael Thomas’ birthday, his cake sits in his mother’s living room, its candles burning undisturbed. Jackie wants to clear her conscience, while Evelyn’s got a big speech to deliver on the 15th anniversary of Michael’s fatal stabbing. Are some things better left unsaid? This compelling piece is about motherhood, loss and what is left after the worst happens.
