Our 2020-2021 Season is currently up in the air, but that does not mean that we are on pause. We will have an outdoor performance of Cry It Out as a fundraiser (see below for details). Watch for us in other spaces as well!
CRY IT OUT
Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler
September 26 & 27 and October 3 & 4, 2020
Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today, she is trying to comfort a screaming newborn. Jessie is desperate to talk to anyone besides Food Network, so when she spies a fellow new mom and neighbor, Lina, at the local Stop & Shop, introduces herself. Happy to have found each other, the two moms agree to meet for coffee and a fast friendship is born. One coffee quickly becomes a daily coffee, as Jessie and Lina laugh through the highs and lows of motherhood. A comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.
