Quotes & Highlights
“Laugh, cry, but most of all, enjoy!”—Examiner.com
The show received a Go! review from LA Weekly.
When some of contemporary theater’s most talented voices – including Pulitzer Prize-winner Beth Henley, Peabody Award-winner Theresa Rebeck and two-time Steinberg/ATCA New Play award finalist Michele Lowe — tackle the subject of motherhood, the result is an eye-opening, hilarious and irresistible night of theater. More than a dozen of today’s best playwrights come together to share their personal stories on one of the most universal themes. Share in the joy, absurdities and unflinching honesty about mothers as these stories give voice to moms and children of all ages, races and even sexes. Whether you are a parent, have a parent or ever want to become a parent, this production will elate and terrify equally — much like motherhood itself.
With an emphasis on storytelling, _In Mother Words _comes alive with a rotating cast of four actors, script in hands, who guide the audience through an evening enhanced by multi-media and movement. Actors Saidah Arrika Ekulona, who was critically acclaimed for originating the role of Mama Nadi in _Ruined _in Chicago and off-Broadway, and James Lecesne, who created the award-winning one man show _Word of Mouth _as well as the Academy Award winning short Trevor, will star in the entire three month run of In Mother Words. The other two actors will perform in four-week rotations; cast changes will be on March 16 and April 30.
