"The show is about the ups and downs of motherhood; what binds mothers together, not what sets them apart...edgy, funny, and true." —Showcase Magazine
This original comedy about motherhood rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don’t always talk about: it’s overwhelming and exhausting, but also very, very funny.

This original comedy about motherhood rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don’t always talk about: it’s overwhelming and exhausting, but also very, very funny. From the joys of infertility, through reading the same books over and over and over, to finally seeing your baby get on that school bus, this play mines the laughs and tears of the early years of motherhood. Four separate characters tell their individual stories, either directly to the audience in monologues, or in scenes with each other. Mothers everywhere can relate to the labor stories, the frustration of a simple trip to the store, the quest to connect with other mothers, all of which causes them to plan moms’ nights out and arrive in packs to laugh hysterically at this tribute to “the toughest job you’ll ever love.”
