The MOMologues

May 7th - May 8th

BUY TICKETS

May 7 & 8 @ 7:30
Platform: Vimeo

The MOMologues is back to celebrate Mother’s Day!  This virtual production is a hilarious ode to mothers that brings to light the fond (and not so fond) parts of becoming a parent that will have everyone cracking up (I mean, we’ve at least all been kids, right?). The original comedy about motherhood starts from the beginning – trying to get pregnant – and ends with seeing the first little miscreant onto the bus. The journey these four mothers’ chronicle is sure to warm your heart, having you crying from laughter, and thanking the heavens the days of repetitive children’s songs are behind you. 

Note: The MOMologues was performed as a virtual reading for Mother’s Day in 2020. This 2021 virtual production is NOT a reading, but a fully rehearsed virtual show complete with backdrops, lighting, etc… performed by actor’s safely in their own homes.
