On The Fence About Submitting?

Get off the fence and jump on in to a challenge.

We want to hear your story.
No, you don’t have to dress like this.
We just happen to love dress up over in these woods.

As a former performer said, challenges to ourselves as we grow older grow further and further apart. Now every day with kids and without them really is a challenge but we are referring to really getting you out of your comfort zone.

We accept pieces about motherhood. We’ve had dads, sons and some women who can not have children share their stories as well.

Real Moms of LA

The only common denominator between the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Expressing Motherhood is high heels.


Last night as I watched a recorded Housewives of Beverly Hills I couldn’t help but thinking that Expressing Motherhood is pretty much the exact opposite of that show.

The beautiful women fight so much and yes I know it’s “reality TV” wink-wink, but still it looks like some feelings are getting hurt.

Come see Real Moms of LA and you will see the comradery that can exist between women.

You might also see some fabulous heels, so brace yourself.

Type A For Expressing Motherhood

Alex Asher Sears is generously donating and creating something using her calligraphy skills via Type A  for all patrons to our opening night, Ladies Night Out.


I love her bio on her website:

Born in the shade of the Hollywood sign, Alex Asher Sears was raised within a family of artists and filmmakers.

As a screenwriter, journalist, and editor, she writes online and in print, about film, family, fashion, Frenchies, fotos, food allergies – and those are just the f-words.

Some of her creations.

I spoke with her on the phone and she was so enthusiastic about supporting theatre in Los Angeles and for that I can’t thank her enough!

Our tickets are selling like hot pancakes so don’t wait too long. Our opening night is half way sold out already.
