‘Motherhood Out Loud’ to open May 7 in Wellsboro

Playing mothers who have taken their children to the park are Amy DeCamp (left) and Rachel Smith. Also in the scene titled “New in the Motherhood” is Sara Crane (not shown).
Celebrate Mother’s Day by going on a “humorous and spirited” journey through motherhood and family with Hamilton-Gibson’s production of “Motherhood Out Loud.”
Performances of the 90-minute show will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 7, 8 and 9 with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Mother’s Day - Sunday, May 10, at the Warehouse Theatre on Central Avenue in Wellsboro, next door to The Native Bagel.

Director Thomas Putnam said, “Anyone who is a mother or has a mother, grandmother, stepmother, foster mother or someone like a mother in his or her life will appreciate the humor and emotions expressed in this play. It is offbeat, edgy, funny and moving and shares truths and wisdom that unite us as human beings.

“If it were a film, ‘Motherhood’ would get a PG-13 rating because it is not a show for children under 13. They will not have the life experience necessary to understand it. High school students and adults will,” Putnam said.

Produced by Hamilton-Gibson, the play is a series of 20 short scenes created by 12 female and 2 male writers. This portrait of motherhood looks at all facets of family.

In one scene, mom (Amy DeCamp) struggles to fit in with other moms (Rachel Smith and Sara Crane) as their children play in the park. The scene is 99 percent comedy with a pearl of wisdom.

In another (DeCamp, Coleen Evert and Kacy Hagen) play three mothers trying to cope with awkward teen-related topics. DeCamp said, “The topics are tough ones for parents and kids. Almost everyone can relate to this. The line I used with my parents to preempt conversations like these was: ‘I had health class.’ For the record, it didn’t work.”

Rachel Smith plays a new mom. In the monologue she tells her one-month-old baby about the day of her birth. Smith said, “It’s a heartfelt story with funny lines sprinkled throughout. All parents can relate to it.”

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. shows on all three nights are $18 for adults and $7 for students. The Sunday matinee is Pay-What-You-Can.

“Motherhood” is sponsored in part by Mountain Valley Realty, LLC.

Clearly, you two did not read the article. It is a play/show about Motherhood written as a comedy. The picture even has the caption that they are "playing" mothers in a park.

Seriously? Some peeps are so damn touchy and sensitive. A couple of generations ago and generations before made this nation a great place at one time. Most parents raised kids to have backbone, some where-with-all and ingenuity and imagination. Times were tough and 'some' strong kids were brought up. Now what do we have? arranged to the minute playdate activity, hovercraft moms, every kid gets a trophy, kids can't walk down a street without a adult or a call to police/DHS is placed, special plans in schools for kids to set them apart and provide special rules, no sugar, only what are deemed 'healthy' snacks. Now, only a bad mother or bad person would dare have a cigarette and lighter. No wonder why this nation is in the dire straits it is. Some people are so very ridiculous. It's a play, get over your'I'm so perfect'self. A nasty judgy attitude is a nasty habit too.
