Cry It Out
Richard Raether, Artists' Ensemble Theater
March 5th 2020 Artists’ Ensemble Theater will open Cry it Out by Molly Smith Metzler; a new play that looks at the lives of three very different women, all of whom are new mothers. The life adjustments that women must make after childbirth is has gotten very little attention in film or Theater. At it’s core, the play looks at the tragically short amount of time that mothers are allowed for maternity leave in this country, and how impossible it is to sort out all the attendant issues, financially and otherwise, of new parenthood in that small window.
