The moms at Mommy-Baby Meetup are used to competing: whoever's the most devoted to her family, has the best-behaved child, and the most satisfied husband wins. But when political turmoil turns their squabbles into actual war, the mothers' fighting instincts turn to the most coveted prize of all – survival.
In conjunction with the production of Mothers, we'll be piloting our Radical Parent-Inclusion Project (RPI) in cooperation with the Parent Artists Advocacy League (PAAL), a series of initiatives that aim to confront the challenges of working parents in theater.
Richard & Jane & Dick & Sally
See Dick grieve his dead mother. See Jane come home after decades away. See Sally lip-read her dog Spot. See Richard struggle to hold his family together. The classic Dick and Jane books are forced out of childhood fantasy and into harsh adult reality in this playful but heart-wrenching take on the “ideal” 1950s American family.
Richard & Jane & Dick & Sally is a co-production with Baltimore Center Stage (Stephanie Ybarra, Artistic Director; Michael Ross, Executive Director), and presented in collaboration with The Sol Project (Jacob G. Padrón, Artistic Director), a national theater initiative dedicated to amplifying the voices of Latinx playwrights.
