MTW's June, 2012 Show
The play was presented to packed houses at Eliot Hall near Boston. The audience – loaded with moms – loved it, howling with appreciation.
Buoyed by their early success, the playwrights expanded their one-act play into a full-length show, including a wide range of universal mom situations like gender differences, the Tooth Fairy, picky eaters, discipline, kids peeing in the playground and all the rest of the real-life comedy that is motherhood.
The full-length version of The MOMologues premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, becoming an immediate sold-out success and prompting a return engagement the following year.
Fulfilling the vocal wishes of throngs of moms wanting a look at the next phase of motherhood, creators penned MOMologues 2: Off to School,* and performed to delighted moms – and dads – at the Regent Theater in Arlington, MA, the Company Theatre in Norwell and the Palace Theatre in New Hampshire. The second show's emphasis is on the second 'trimester' of motherhood's gestational hilarity, covering the dark depths of....elementary school!
Director Kari DeMarco says, "I was attracted to this piece because I'm a mom who loves to laugh. This show is just plain funny most of the time, but will also make you cry in spots. I wanted to bring it to life as a gift to the moms in our community. It should make for a wonderful night out with your girlfriends... and dads will get it, too."
We had fresh talent show up and people will love seeing some new faces on stage. These girls are funny and relatable, just like the show. It's going to be a fun night for audiences in June!
