Secret Life of a Mother


Secret Life of a Mother: ASL interpreted performance on November 2nd at 8:00PM

Secret Life of a Mother, written by one of Canada’s most prolific and popular playwrights, Hannah Moscovitch, is an exposé of modern motherhood and Hannah’s most personal writing to date. One of her oldest friends, the multiple Dora Award-winning actor Maev Beaty, tells this story, and through it her own motherhood secrets start to surface.

This isn’t the sexist, vaseline-lensed, pop-culture myth that insists all women will love and cherish motherhood. This isn’t mothers as the butts of jokes, or the villains, or the perfect angels of the home. Secret Life of a Mother reveals what two women are actually experiencing: the raw and transcendent and untold secrets of pregnancy, miscarriage, childbirth, and mothering. This is motherhood for the 21st century: hallucinatory, gothic, and empowered.

Access Info: The Theatre Centre (1115 Queen St West ) is an accessible facility, with barrier-free washrooms and an accessibility lift to facilitate movement between floors.
