Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts presents Mommies & Mimosas
After a seemingly never-ending summer, this quick-witted club of “Baby Mamas” is thrilled to be celebrating freedom after dropping their little ones off on the first day of preschool. Queen Bee Heather has invited Charlotte and Lydia to her Pinterest-perfect home in suburbia for their annual boozy brunch, some fierce humble bragging, and a candid look at motherhood.
All goes as planned until Jane, newcomer to the neighborhood, shows up at Heather’s doorstep eight months pregnant and desperate for girlfriends. The playful party games and cliquey ceremonies soon unravel, exposing heartache behind the mask of motherhood.
This world premiere from UH senior playwright Audrey Morabito delves into the delicate and complex realm of female friendship as the women come together to navigate feelings of failure and conflicting senses of identity.
