How to Survive Your Mother

The true story of a Technicolor woman in a black and white world

The true story of a Technicolor Woman in a black and white world

By Jonathan Maitland (Dead Sheep, An Audience with Jimmy Savile, The Interview)

How do you navigate a crazy, glamorous, narcissistic, scandal-loving mother whose idea of fun is to turn your 1970s family home into Britain’s first ever gay hotel?


A chance meeting leads a writer to investigate his mother’s secret past and trawl through memories of her colourful life. It’s perfect subject matter for a play. But should he be exposing her private life for public entertainment? And why is he starring in the play as himself?
