This show made me fall in love with my own mother all over again. Clementine is such a powerful show that explores what it means to be a woman and the sacrifices it takes to be a mother. Beautifully raw, honest and poetic. ... full review

April is such a gifted performer and has a heart as big as Ireland! I love the way her passion for life comes through in her show. I felt as though her kids must be the luckiest to have her as a mom, and I felt completely seen as a mom myself. We are flawed, imperfect, and trying our best while trying to understand who we are as these new people - “mom” - and April voices this flawlessly.... full review

Clementine is a masterpiece delivered with such authenticity and heart. April, you are an inspiration for any mother, daughter and woman in this world. Your vulnerability and your sense of humor make this show an unforgettable experience for anyone lucky enough to watch it. Hence your 4 sold out shows at this wonderful Festival and the standing ovations at the end. Thank You for making us laugh, cry and feel.... full review

A realistic, relatable story about the dichotomy of motherhood ranging from never wanting to let your kids out of your sight to wishing they'd leave you alone for at least two seconds so you can go to the bathroom. April expertly sparks laughter through tears when she talks about how her life has evolved once she became a mother. I loved it. ... full review

This is a must see show. It is a rollercoaster of emotions. There is humor and reflection and true feelings from the heart. The audience was with April every step of the way. She captures the ins and outs of motherhood and being a daughter and granddaughter and wife to a tee. ... full review

April's show is everything we feel as a mom all wrapped up in 80 mins. Seeing yourself in your children is both amazing and difficult and it creates so many feelings about we make decisions. Family is so important and it's obvious that it is very important to April. It is funny, cringeworthy, heartfelt, and uplifting!... full review
