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
