Center Stage at the Southampton Cultural Center will present the play “Motherhood OUT LOUD” from next Thursday through March 24 at its Levitas Center for the Arts. Michael Disher directs. The play entrusts the subject of motherhood to a collection of American writers who aim to shatter traditional notions about parenthood, unveil its inherent comedy, and celebrate the deeply personal truths that span and unite generations.
“Motherhood OUT LOUD,” which premiered at Primary Stages, was conceived by Susan R. Rose and Joan Stein. It contains monologues written by Leslie Ayvazian, Brooke Berman, David Cale, Jessica Goldberg, Beth Henley, Claire LaZebnick, Lisa Loomer, Michele Lowe, Marco Pennette, Theresa Rebeck, Luanne Rice, Annie Weisman, and Cheryl L. West. The cast includes Dan Becker, Valerie J. DiLorenzo, Adam Fronc, Barbara Jo Howard, Kasia Klimiuk, Joan Lyons, Josephine Wallace, Edna Winston, and Susan Wojcik.
Performances will take place on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. General admission is $22, $12 for students under 21 with ID. Group rates are available and reservations are encouraged. Tickets can be purchased by telephone at 287-4377 or online at scc-arts.org.
