The comedy that proves motherhood is not for the faint-of-heart

A wildly funny, deeply touching, straight-from-the-heart exploration of motherhood – the good, the bad, and the oh-so-ugly – told through stories, “mom”-ologues and anecdotes, all gleaned from personal experience. A new cast of performer-parents illustrate, in the funniest possible way, what it means to be a mom right now. It’s the perfect play for anyone who is a mom, wants to be a mom, or who has a mom you once spit up on.

In partnership with The Belfry Theatre

“I can’t remember an audience enjoying itself as much. Anyone who currently has, once had, or plans ever to have children should see this show for the horrible, hilarious truths it tells about parenting—and for the remarkably astute and talented women who’ve turned messy motherhood into achingly funny art.”  –

Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes, with one intermission

Bob Says: “I first saw this play in the 90s, when my children were still very young, and it really spoke to me. When I read it again recently, I was surprised at how much it still resonates with me. Of course it’s hilariously funny, but it’s also touching and genuine, with true emotional impact. I’m looking forward to introducing it to a new generation of parents, but I also think it will remind those of us whose small-child parenting days are behind us, just what an incredible journey we took with our little ones.”
