8 Years of Expressing Motherhood

Expressing Motherhood closed out it’s 8th year this past weekend to a sold out crowd in Silver Lake.



Expressing Motherhood had a wonderful two night run in Chicago led by Local Producer Colleen O’Neill.

As far as upcoming shows, tickets for the South Bay show in January are now on sale.


Submissions for the Mother’s Day shows in Santa Monica and Santa Barbara will be accepted in January.


Here is a wonderful quote that Silver Lake patron Donna Staub had to say about the show, “The stories made me laugh, cry and think. Totally engrossing and carefully curated. I gave a well deserved standing ovation. Expressing Motherhood is a gift.”

I assure you I don’t think I could have dreamt 8 years ago this show would still be going or someone might say something like that.


Thank you for your continuing patronage.
