Last year, I had the huge honor of being part of the inaugural Kansas City cast of Ann Imig's national Listen to Your Mother Show. Reading my piece in front of an audience was incredible, but the life-changing part of the experience? The friendships branded the minute I met these women in Erin Margolin's basement for a read-through.
You call me up, because you know I'll be there.
This year, I'm excited to sit in the audience with my girlfriends and let the experience wash over me. And I'm giving away a pair of tickets! Here are the details about the show:
LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER is a live show of readings by individuals that celebrate the guts and gore and glory of motherhood.
Each production is directed, produced and performed by local communities. In 2014, 32 cities will host a LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER show. The show is co-produced and co-directed by Erin Margolin, Sarah Guthrie, Leslie Kohlmeyer and Lisa Allen.
The show will be at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at Unity Temple on The Plaza. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 on the day of the show. Ten percent of ticket proceeds will benefit Women’s Employment Network.
Here are the women reading this year:
