"The show is about the ups and downs of motherhood; what binds mothers together, not what sets them apart...edgy, funny, and true." -Showcase Magazine

This original comedy about motherhood rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don't always talk about: it's overwhelming and exhausting, but also very, very funny. From the joys of infertility, through reading the same books over and over and over, to finally seeing your baby get on that school bus, this play mines the laughs and tears of the early years of motherhood. Four separate characters tell their individual stories, either directly to the audience in monologues, or in scenes with each other. Mothers everywhere can relate to the labor stories, the frustration of a simple trip to the store, the quest to connect with other mothers, all of which causes them to plan moms' nights out and arrive in packs to laugh hysterically at this tribute to "the toughest job you'll ever love."

This show is not for Mothers Only- everyone can relate to the trials & tribulations, happiness and joy- after all, we ALL had mothers!





Gateway Family Needs Your Help

You may have read about the tragic fire at Rosemead Apartments in Southbridge on Sunday, Dec 13. A 16 family building caught fire. Norman and Kristen Durham lost everything in this fire. Fortunately they were all able to escape. You may remember Norm & Kristen from the cast of "The Christmas Express", Norm is on the Gateway board, and daughter Maggie worked backstage on "Shrek". They escaped with the clothes they were wearing. While the Red Cross can be a help in the immediate aftermath, this family needs everything- clothes, furniture, furnishings- EVERYTHING.

There is a Go-Fund-Me page set up by Robyn Elizabeth on Facebook. You can also send donations to: Gateway PO Box 171, Southbridge, MA 01571 and we will be sure they get your checks. If you would like to contact the Durhams directly to see what they may need, send a message to Kristen Stines Durham via Facebook.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Durham family.
