Motherhood Out Loud

About The Play

Motherhood Out Loud is a compilation of monologues, vignettes, and short scenes composed by 16 different prominent American playwrights and producers, all but two of which are female.

This includes the conceptual work of Susan R. Rose and Joan Stein, and the scripting expertise of Leslie Ayvazian, David Cale, Jessica Goldberg, Beth Henley, Lameece Issaq, Claire LaZebnik, Lisa Loomer, Michele Lowe, Marco Pennette, Theresa Rebeck, Luanne Rice, Annie Weisman, Cheryl L. West, and Brooke Berman.

Motherhood Out Loud had its world premiere at Hartford Stage in Connecticut in 2010. From there it was refined and brought to the West Coast as In Mother Words via Geffen Playhouse in 2011. It has since been performed by companies across the United States and has even traveled abroad to countries such as Spain and Australia.

Despite its overall positive reception, Motherhood Out Loud continues to be a relatively unknown entity among theater goers and professionals alike. Its quick wit and heartfelt gestures cover a broad range of parenting from a diverse set of backgrounds and circumstances and in many ways it pays homage to the bravery and scandal that followed The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler in 1996.

Described as utterly unpredictable, “Motherhood Out Loud” is said to shatter traditional notions about parenthood, unveil its inherent comedy, and celebrate the deeply personal truths that

span and unite generations of child-rearing adults. To learn more about the show, and follow some it's recent adventures, go to its blog online at
