About Eat the Mama

“Eat the Mama” is a solo theater piece that explores one mother's experience of feeling un-motherly ever since becoming a “mother.” Early motherhood had Jessica facing realities about her body that she had spent her whole life since puberty avoiding. It had her leaking emotions she had worked decades to plaster over. She was an astronaut, separated from a boiling death by a flimsy spacesuit. She was a supernova, consuming itself in darkness. She was a space rock, cold and alone, waiting to be pulled into another body’s gravitational orbit. “Eat the Mama” is one juicy bite of vulnerability with a lot of space metaphors.

Writer/producer/performer Jessica Mele is an experienced sketch comedian, a founding member of PianoFight's female-driven sketch comedy group, Chardonnay. Director May Liang is Artistic Director of Ferocious Lotus Theatre Company. She is a resident artist at Crowded Fire Theater and has worked with American Conservatory Theater, Berkeley Repertory Theater’s Ground Floor Lab, California Shakespeare Theater, and Bay Area Playwrights Foundation, among others.
