Motherhood Out Loud
A culturally and gender diverse series of monologues on the subject of Motherhood, written by a host of celebrated writers. Motherhood Out Loud traverses the experience of motherhood in all its wonderful glory from inception, birth, sexuality, growing up, letting go and the inevitable role reversal that occurs as we find ourselves parenting our parents. After successful productions all over the country, including an off-Broadway run in New York City, this will be the show’s Berkshire premiere.
Conceived by Susan R. Rose and Joan Stein
Produced by Jayne Atkinson and Susan Rose
