mOTHER, a play
As present history and politics are once again trying to define how women make choices about their bodies and reproduction, this new one-women play discussing the often taboo choice of opting-out of motherhood debuts in Pittsburgh with a limited run on October 27 & 28, 2017.
Playwright Stacey Vespazianis autobiographical piece follows the character of OTHER from her first period on into the downright awkwardness of sex education, through the mishaps of teenage sexual exploration, then to the societal pressures of adult partnership and ultimately to the moment of personal truth.
The plays best intention is not to judge other peoples choices around parenthood, but by focusing on one true story simply give a voice to anOTHER way to be a woman in todays world.
Odds & Ends Productions premiered the show to audience and critical acclaim at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival in June with performances in Boulder, Chicago and Pittsburgh to follow.
"Stacey Vespaziani bares all in her solo show about the societal dichotomy between being a woman and being a mother. ~Jackie Mulay (Cincinnati City Beat)
