About this show

Diana Rigg stars as Huma Rojo in Samuel Adamson's world premiere stage adaptation of Pedro Almodóvar's Oscar-winning 1999 film, All About My Mother. Tom Cairns directs. Following the tragic death of her beloved son, Manuela goes to Barcelona in search of the father he never knew. But before she can exorcise her guilt, she gets caught up in the lives of three women: Agrado, a long-lost transvestite friend, Rosa, a young nun in search of love, and Huma Rojo, the famous actress her son so admired. Just as Manuela's life begins to have meaning again, her son's father returns and her journey of discovery and forgiveness comes full circle. The production features the film score by Alberto Iglesias supplemented with new stage music by Ben and Max Ringham.
