Crow's Theatre, 345 Carlaw Ave

Secret Life of a Mother at Crow’s Theatre

Co-produced by The SLOM Collective and The Theatre Centre

Presented by Crow’s Theatre

A playwright writes an exposé of modern motherhood: a confessional piece about her own darkly funny and taboo-breaking truths. One of her real-life friends, an actress, performs this story, and through it her own motherhood secrets start to surface. These mothers are not the butts of jokes, or the villains, or the perfect angels of the house.

Secret Life of a Mother reveals the raw, transcendent and untold secrets of pregnancy, miscarriage, childbirth, and mothering. This is motherhood for the 21st century: hallucinatory, gothic, and empowered.

Don’t miss the show that The Toronto Star, and The Globe and Mail celebrated in their Top Ten theatre experiences of 2018!
