Apollinaire Theatre Company presents Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler
“I liked it so much I wanted to set up a day-care in the lobby. As I said, the best show in town.” —Chicago Tribune
“takes audiences on an emotional roller-coaster ride that whipsaws through laughs, poignant tears and moments of monumental rage” —LEO Weekly
Jessie is feeling trapped and alone on maternity leave in her new Long Island duplex. Starved for adult conversation, she invites the funny and forthright Lina for coffee in their neighboring backyards. They become fast friends, quickly bonding over their shared “new mom” experience despite the financial gulf between them—while someone watches from the mansion on the cliff overlooking Jessie’s yard. This insightful comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of new motherhood, the dilemma of returning to work, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship in America.
