A FUNNY, REFRESHING LOOK AT NEW MOTHERHOOD.
- DC THEATER SCENE
We regret that the balance of our 2019/20 season—including the New Voices Festival productions (Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, Berta, Berta, and Cry It Out) as well as Awake and Sing!—has been suspended. Our commitment to staying connected and our plan to move ahead with our 30th anniversary season is unwavering. We are working to determine if some or all of these canceled productions might be moved into next season and will let you know as soon as that can be confirmed. Thank you for your patience and patronage.
2 a.m. feedings, dirty diapers, and other hazards of new motherhood are enough to give anyone sleepless nights. This no-holds-barred comedy from award-winning writer Molly Smith Metzler (Shameless, Orange is the New Black) holds both a microscope and a megaphone to the joys and perils facing new parents today, whether you’re ivy-educated or in night-school. Join Jessie and Lina in their Long Island backyards where the wildly different, but equally difficult parenting decisions facing each mother—and the neighbors in the mansion up on the cliff—are “worth your attention, whether you are a member of the mommy brigade or not” (Broadway World).
