If you have come to this site thinking about submitting, even just a little bit, I hope that I can persuade you to do just so.
First of all the power is in your story and since we all have stories to tell you’ve got some power right there.
A lot of people who have shared their stories about motherhood on stage have never been on stage before. Ever. Ever. Ever.
A woman who was just in our show told me that she was so glad she participated because even though the night before our first rehearsal she was regretting the decision, as soon as she showed up she began to know that it was a great move. She wanted to challenge herself.
I started the show with Jessica to challenge myself. As the same woman said, these opportunities to challenge ourselves grow slimmer.
You don’t have to be a mom to be in the show.
The first person I cast was a gay dad.
Your story needs to be your own about your experience in regards to motherhood, that part is true, but I’m sure you have one.
Being a part of Expressing Motherhood is exhausting. But it’s also rewarding, bittersweet, soul satisfying and all around unique. The bittersweet part comes when it ends because although you might be tired a lot of former participants just wish it could continue on a bit longer.
Again, if there is any part of you that is interested in pushing yourself, go for it. This is a great, nurturing environment to do just that.
