Description

Mamahood: Bursting into LIGHT is a witty and profoundly moving ode to motherhood written & performed by Nicolle Nattrass.*

A mother, a playwright, and an actress, Jessie Award-nominated Nicolle Nattrass ** shares her story with humor.

Nattrass is a big-hearted and fearlessly vulnerable performer whose charm is a great strength of this show. Mothers who’ve believed themselves to be alone in falling short of [motherhood] ideals are this show’s natural audience. Nattrass has given them a gift.”
-Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight

She courageously shares her struggle to be the “PERFECT Mom”, facing being thought of as an “Older Parent”, to confronting the endless choices faced by new mothers, Sleep Deprivation, (did I mention the sleep deprivation?) along with her own post partum experience.

"I recommend this play to all new moms, dads, parents, grandparents and anyone who has a “mom”, it validates the experience of motherhood in a way that truly shows the ups and downs as well as the amazing journey that we all embark on when we become parents, she shares with us the joys and the sorrows and ultimately the healing of some of those really difficult parts. You will laugh and you will cry!"

Sheila Duffy
