Mom's The Word 3: Nest 1/2 Empty - Arts Club

Mom's The Word 3: Nest 1/2 Empty - Arts Club Mom's The Word 3: Nest 1/2 Empty - Vancouver Arts Club Theatre


From the world-renowned creative team behind the Mom’s the Word series comes a new chapter in their stories of family and fracas. Mom’s the Word 3: Nest 1/2 Empty is the latest in the hugely successful autobiographically-based series about not just motherhood but female personhood.

In the first play, back in 1995, the moms - Jill Daum, Alison Kelly, Robin Nichol, Barbara Pollard and Deborah Williams - shared their feelings about giving birth and entering the brave new world of female parenthood.

The 2005 sequel charted their kids’ entry into adolescence and their own sense of aging.

Now, in Part 3, their kids are grown, their marriages have “evolved,” and their bodies are backfiring. The twenty-something offspring have flown the nest, or in a few cases come back again, and the moms are hilariously ambivalent. Life doesn’t get any prettier, but it never strays far from ludicrous or poignant as the moms continue to mine their personal history for every embarrassing detail.

It’s impossible to overestimate the achievement of this group of women. What began as a sanity-saving project for six theatre artists with young children in 1994 has grown into an international franchise, with productions all over the world.

Filled with insights, secrets, and ribald humour, this brand-new show from the moms you love is both hysterical and deeply touching.
