"It expresses and honors the diversity of reactions to the disruptive arrival of a baby; it observes that there are no right answers; it captures how this particular part of being human puts the most demands on you when you are least able to deal with them."
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
"A clear-eyed look at maternal stresses in today’s America, it is also swift-moving and laugh-out-loud entertaining. Cry It Out explodes the myths of maternal bliss."
- Amy Kotkin, DC Metro
ABOUT THIS PLAY
Messy and raw, like it really is, Cry It Out is a deeply felt drama about the complicated, emotional, and financial consequences of becoming a parent.
Cry It Out tells the story of three young mothers (and one bewildered father) with little in common but one huge thing: newborns.
Confronting the absurdities of being home with a baby – and the usual, terrifying choices that all parents face – they turn to the power of female friendship. But even that great equalizer can’t negate the unfair effect that money has on raising children.
