What I liked

OK get out your tissues, this one will shatter your heart. I have never seen a better, more emotionally searing description of motherhood and the impossible task that entails, written and performed by an incredibly talented writer and actress telling the true story of her own life. Remarkably brave, this 75 minute long solo performance bounces back and forth, as parenting itself does, from remembering your own childhood, to seeing yourself in your children. It beautifully and perfectly captures the exhaustion, joy and every day challenges and thrills of creating a new life. Poetically written and masterfully acted. I’m weeping as I write this review, it moved me so. Simply unforgettable.
