MOTHERFREAKINGHOOD! (MATERNAL DISCRETION ADVISED)

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Julie Dunlap & Sara Stotts

Celebrating the mother you never thought you should be.

Rachael, wide-eyed and optimistic, is elated to finally put her party days behind and become a mom... #YAY! Angie has pre-enrolled her unborn child in the most exclusive all-girls preschool (definitely a girl, she already has a boy). After three kids, Marcia thought she was done. Is it bad that she doesn’t want to cancel her wine of the month club or stop having sex on her back? With a soundtrack ranging from rock to pop to funk and more, join these three unlikely friends as they bond in the trenches from pregnancy tests to empty nests, dominating the diapers and tackling the teens with unmotherly charm, one bottle at a time!

Recommended for ages 16+

Running time: 1 hour 35 minutes
