Read from your heart. Read as authentically “you” as possible. LTYM is less about performing, and more about giving voice to your experience. We want you (even if it’s a wobbly-voiced, crying, hand-shaking you) not a caricature of you.
Make sure that Motherhood (or a mother) is the star of your piece.
Give yourself credit for auditioning. If the room filled with laughter and tears—that happened. That was genuine.
Remember: The stories choose each other. Every year, with every cast, the stories line themselves up and rearrange themselves and turn into a show. Each story will always depend on the others.
Thank you so much for sharing yours.
