Mrs. Mama’s House ()

Produced by

A Company of Some

Presented by

The Toronto Fringe Festival

Playwright: Nathaniel Kinghan
Director: Autumn Smith


Bata Shoe Museum


July 4th, 2018 – July 15th, 2018


There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread;
And whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Nursery rhyme magic with a Grimm twist: MRS. MAMA’S HOUSE is an absurd retelling of the “Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” classic. This site-informed performance is generously hosted by the BATA SHOE MUSEUM and promises to both unsettle and intrigue. (
