MY NAME IS MOMMY is written & performed by April Wade Wish and is Directed by & Developed with Jessica Lynn Johnson.
This award winning, multimedia, and multiple character one woman show celebrates the exhilaration of motherhood, balancing poetic passages with humorous detours into the modern realities of raising small children. April moves forward and backward through time, exploring the pressures and the promises of parenthood.
Unapologetically feminist and powerfully tender, MY NAME IS MOMMY studies a matriarchal family’s traditions, exploring the connection between generations through Wish’s lens as both a mother and a daughter. The show follows her journey as she looks for the bits and pieces of herself she left behind when she stepped into her role as Mother – buried under mountains of toys and traditions.
In this dynamic and often hilarious piece, April has crafted a love letter to her daughter, as well as to the little girl she used to be herself.
The show will be LIVE on Zoom and in order to foster connection and community, the chat feature will be left on for the duration of the show. Chatting and discussion throughout and after is encouraged.
So, don’t forget to invite a friend or two and pour a glass of wine. Or two.
