Motherhood: The Musical
Captioned Performances: Wednesday, 26 October at 11am and 8pm
by Sue Fabisch
A baby is just the beginning. Motherhood is for life.
It’s the joyous journey and loving look at the blessings and perils of being a Mum. It’s climbing the emotional mountain only to find that there’s laundry at the top. It’s discovering how powerful your love can be and how quickly they grow up. It’s helping them find their way and not losing yours. It’s about laughing and crying, craziness and calm, smiles and tears … and all before breakfast. Motherhood The Musical is a hilarious, musical journey through the lives of four women. There’s Barb, the over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five. There’s Brooke, the lawyer, who works too much and barely sees her kids. There’s Trisha, a single mum who’s struggling to juggle it all. And Amy, the naïve 20-something about to have her first child. As the three friends throw Amy a baby shower, the truth about motherhood (the good, the bad and the ugly) all come out into the open: the diapers, the dirty laundry, the lazy husbands and everything in-between.
