What people are saying about the show…
What drew me to Elaine’s project was her commitment to transcending the apparent loss of a dream and transforming it into an empowering, life-changing gift. I was inspired by her vulnerability, honesty and courage.—Monica Lenches, Documentary Filmmaker
I was attracted to this work because of its honesty, humor and ability to inspire audiences. My work has been focused on creating theater that leaves an audience thinking, re-evaluating and embracing new ideas. The work deals with many issues that people face on a daily basis, but are not often discussed in public. It offers insight on how we can all come through challenges in life and see a silver lining.—Rod Lathim, Award-winning Theater Director
The power of this script is Elaine’s vulnerability, self-awareness, and humor. I was drawn to this piece because it was so brutally honest and because she doesn’t pull any punches with herself. It gives voice to a demographic who often hide their stories inside the shame our society inflicts on childfree women. For a woman to tell her story of loss and discovering true happiness without children is a fiercely feminist act and one I hope more women are able to stand up and do. We are not all mothers or wives or all anything. There is space for all of us if we make room.—Amanda McRaven, Award-winning Theater Director
