Motherhood Out Loud is a collection of short plays that tells the hilarious, touching and sometimes agonizing story of motherhood, covering many different angles from cradle to grave. Stories from 14 playwrights are carefully curated into themed chapters. In "Fast Births" we witness the miracle of life followed by a new mom receiving unwanted sex advice from her own mother. "First Day" introduces us to gay dads, adoption, and a mother coping with her child's gender identity. Other chapters cover sex talks, step-motherhood, first dates, leaving the nest, marriage and adulthood.

The Barn is presenting Motherhood Out Loud as a staged reading.
