CRY IT OUT
Written by Molly Smith Metzler
June 21st to August 17th at Barter’s Smith Theatre
Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today she finds herself in a sleepy Long Island suburb, wearing dirty yoga pants, covered in breast milk, and trying to comfort a screaming newborn while befriending other new moms in her neighborhood. Cry It Out takes a comedic and honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America. “It’s the smartest look at what it really means to be a woman you’ll ever see onstage.”
