Then I had two kids in a year and a half. As you might imagine, I stopped working for a while– until I was asked to write a new one-woman show for a theater where I’d worked in the past. While my older son was in preschool nine hours a week, I went to the coffee shop and wrote Mother Load.
Six years later, I’ve performed that show well over a hundred times, in a nine-week off-Broadway run and in fifteen other cities around the country.
Getting to travel around the country and meet thousands of mothers (first for the show, now through the book and this blog) has been my favorite part of what I do. I love learning, time and again, that what we have in common far outweighs what separates us. I love it when a group of us can come together and realize through laughter that we’re not half so bad as we think we are.
