When entrusting the subject of motherhood to such a dazzling collection of celebrated American writers, what results is a joyous, moving, hilarious, and altogether thrilling theatrical play. Utterly unpredictable, Motherhood Out Loud shatters traditional notions about parenthood, unveils its inherent comedy and celebrates the deeply personal truths that span and unite generations. Motherhood Out Loud reveals with illuminating insight the humor, raw emotions and rocky roads we experience in life. Written by Leslie Ayvazian, Brooke Berman, David Cale, Jessica Goldberg, Beth Henley, Lameece Issaq, Claire LaZebnik, Lisa Loomer, Michele Lowe, Marco Pennette, Theresa Rebeck, Luanne Rice, Annie Weisman and Cheryl L. West, under the direction of Lisa Peterson, Motherhood Out Loud received its triumphant World Premiere at Hartford Stage and recently completed its West Coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse (as In Mother Words).
The creative team includes Rachel Hauck (Set), David C. Woolard (Costumes), Christopher Kuhl (Lights), Jill BC Du Boff (Sound), Jan Hartley (Projections), Emily Hubley (Animation), Janice Paran (Dramaturgy) and Donald S. Fried (Production Stage Manager).
