This piece explores a truthful account of the life of a mother's first year. Performing with her son will be a challenge as he crawls and explores the world. Watch as her relationship gets stretched to the limit in this quirky, funny and poignant work in progress.

Monologues of Motherhood- Unwashed and Unhinged- 20 minutes
Version 4 is the most developed. I have included 10 minutes with my son and 10 minutes of a solo monologue exploring the darker days of parenting. I wanted to add my own solo time into the piece to be honest about motherhood and not just focus on the tender moments. I want to be real, transparent, genuine.
