James Joyce said: "Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world, a mother's love is not."
There is something about motherhood, about a mother's love that often seems like the strongest force in the universe. Your mom will love you whether you deserve it or not. But all of the universal statements about motherhood are re-tinctured by variables, and that's what we'll exploring today in the context of "Motherhood Out Loud" -- a new play at Hartford Stage Company.
Acclaimed author Luanne Rice, one of my oldest and dearest friends, is one of 15 contributing writers to the work. Amy Irving is one of its actors and Joan Stein is one of the project's creators. So is there anything to be said about motherhood that hasn't already been said? Or is everything about motherhood, an entire universe, waiting and begging to be turned into stories? We'd love to hear from you about that.
"Motherhood Out Loud" runs until Sunday, March 21.
