Full disclosure I'm not your typical theatre pervayor, or arts expert, just a mama that enjoys a good show now and then, so please take this review with a grain of salt as I'm sure there are many minds out there much more equipped to provide critique for such a production.
The Mommy Monologues were a mix of relatable hardships, humorous deliveries and simple but meaningful prop work and stage design. From the adoptive mom of a pregnant teen to the perpetual liar that imagines a life with kids I think the Mommy Monologues are a fair and honest depiction of the struggles and realities we face as not only as moms but women. Whether you have kids of your own or see some of yourself or your own mother in these characters, I think there is a tidbit any person can relate to.
Audiences on opening night seemed attentive and receptive to the themes and pieces presented. This mama is giving the Mommy Monologues two thumbs up. The show runs at the Alberta Avenue Community Centre until March 12. Tickets are $22 for adults and $17 for students/seniors - get yours here. The Mommy Monologues are presented was part of the Skirtsafire herArts Festival.
