In the dark ages of the 1990s, motherhood was a blood-sport of pageantry and honor. Instead of thundering steeds, moms drove minivans. Instead of helmets and shining armor, they wore fanny packs and sported side-ponies held in place with scrunchies. And now the glorious tale of these legendary warriors is told in The Moms: Fannypackin' Heat. In a world where it's all for the kids, six parents battle to rule the school district once and for all ... or at least for the duration of the coming school year. Friendships are challenged and wine coolers are emptied in this deliriously funny play at the Chicago Dramatists Theatre. Learn More

My wife and I laughed all the way through along with the rest of the audience. The story was very funny and very well performed. One has to find sex and politics even at the local levels to be amusing to appreciate this show, but I don't think that leaves out too many people. I am going to run out to vote for Clark... or was it the other guy...?
Theatre Seven presents the Chicago premiere of Josh Tobiessen's rip-roaring political satire.
The race for mayor is coming down to the wire, and Adam's activist girlfriend, Brenda, won't stop reminding him to vote. When Brenda heads out for one last day on the stump, Adam gets a visit from his deadbeat sister, her anarchist boyfriend and the opposing mayoral candidate himself. Between a kidnapping conspiracy, a sack of Molotov cocktails, a sex-for-votes exchange and one severely stoned ecoterrorist, will Adam ever make it to the voting booth?
Directed by Brant Russell
