Crying Shame is a one woman monologue that explores the internal sufferings of a young single mother as she struggles with her mental illness and the demands of her new baby.

Written in response to the highly publicised murders of 4 siblings by their young mother, Kamarra was determined to shine light on the unspoken side of motherhood.
