Get “On the Edge” with The MOMologues Opening on the Erie Playhouse stage in February
The MOMologues – an original comedy about motherhood – highlights the “On the Edge” Tuesdays’ series at the Erie Playhouse in February and March. This play, which is presented as a staged reading, rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don’t always talk about: it’s overwhelming and exhausting, but also very, very funny.
The MOMologues was conceived by Lisa Rafferty, who searched in vain for a play that offered an honest, funny look at motherhood. Lisa teamed up with fellow moms Stefanie Cloutier and Sheila Eppolito to write a show based on stories and experiences from the trenches of raising eight children among them.
The result: a one-act play that followed four women through the first chapters of motherhood – attempts at conception, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and adjusting to life with a newborn.
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.
This full-length version of The MOMologues became an immediate sold-out success, and can now be seen at the Erie Playhouse featuring Patty Corella, Leslie Ford, Krista Lamb, and Kelly Rodland. The show is under the direction of Richard Davis.
