Mommy Monster


Friday October 8 at 8pm

Written & Performed by April Wish
Directed by Brandon Sean Pearson

April Wish’s second solo show is shrouded in dandelions, smothered in butterfly kisses and buried in laundry. It is a hysterical, affectionate and searing portrait of modern motherhood. Achingly lovingly and daringly personal, Wish lays bare the realities of mom rage and examines a mother’s love that is so big, so wild, it burns like the sun.

Born of parenting through a pandemic, the work explores the complexities of sibling relationships and the impossibility of perfection while asking: how do you raise a good, kind, gentle boy in a world – in a country – that isn’t always good or kind…and is never gentle?
