Susan Wokoma records audiobook of My Mum’s a Twat

Audiobook and theatre fans will be delighted to learn that Chewing Gum and Year of The Rabbit star Susan Wokoma has recorded an audiobook version of the theatrical monologue My Mum’s A Twat with Audible.

The account of a girl who is losing her mother to a cult, My Mum’s A Twat was written by Anoushka Warden and it debuted at the Royal Court Theatre in 2018 before travelling up to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.

Writer Warden said: “Part of the brilliance of live theatre is that once the run is over, the production can only remain in your head. But as a writer it can feel a bit sad, as you may never see or hear your piece performed again. 

“Thanks to this Audible version when I’m 87 and living in a pod somewhere in the earth’s atmosphere (coz it’s the future right?!) I like that I’ll be able to listen to the amazing voice of Susan Wokoma speaking words that I wrote when I was much younger. That’s pretty cool!”
 
Wokoma added: “When Anoushka asked me to record My Mum’s A Twat I leapt at the opportunity. Any story that is witty, smart, breaks your heart and explores the empowering force of rap has me ALL IN. 

“I’m a huge fan of the audio medium and its power and reach and am delighted that I get to join this team. I hope listeners love this story as much as I do.”

The audiobook of My Mum’s A Twat will be released on 4th August and available on Audible for one credit to members or £4.99. You can pre-order here!
