Have you been writing?

We’re on the cusp of dates, times, locations all coming together… as well as the boxes of tissues to wipe away our tears of laughter, heartache, understanding and yearning for… for what was is motherhood.

Before we announce audition signups, we wanted to share THIS piece written by one of our alums, Lori Nassif, from Providence Cast 2014.

We urge you to find your voice, share your story and stay tuned for auditions for our upcoming season!

A Place for Motherhood

by chelleymartinka on December 7, 2015

Hello Providence! We have been emailing, messaging, posting, cross-posting, G-chating (even when some of our computers don’t work) and knee-deep in planning our 2016 show. Listen to Your Mother is more than sharing your stories, it’s about taking the journey of motherhood with you- whatever that means to you. So prepare your stories and stay tuned! We are excited to give [your] motherhood a mic- to give you a place for your motherhood to be heard!

We can’t wait to put together another amazing show this year, but there is a beautiful Winter approaching and we wish you all the love, warmth and joy this season brings. Happy holidays to you!

The culmination of 8 months of work into one night that left us feeling both full and empty at the same time. The words will still on our lips, the tears in our eyes, the laughter spilling from our lungs. Some pieces went to places others cannot bear to think of… Hearts spilling, a story of living as uniquely as one could… Others gave us the memories of our own mothers: Who gave up more than we knew to help us become the mothers we are. How keenly aware we all are of our places. As mothers and fathers, daughters, sons, friends… how unaware we once were.
