Listen To Your Mother

Posted: Updated:
14 LOCAL WRITERS TAPPED TO SHARE THEIR STORIES FOR TRIANGLE’s 2nd ANNUAL LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER

-- a national series of original live readings shared locally on stages and globally via social media --

RALEIGH -- This year for Mother’s Day, treat yourself to a night of real stories from a cast of women you can relate to.

Fourteen local writers, selected after a two-phase audition, will read a selection of their own stories about motherhood in the second annual Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Listen to Your Mother show.

The Triangle cast will deliver 3-5 minute stories live on stage Tuesday, May 6, and Thursday, May 8, at Kenan Auditorium at William Peace College, Raleigh. Last year’s inaugural show sold out quickly, so the 2014 cast is presenting two performances to meet anticipated demand.

Tickets are $20 and are available on-line at http://ltymrdu.brownpapertickets.com/

Note: A portion of all ticket proceeds goes to benefit Safe Child.

About LYTM

Listen to Your Mother was launched by mother-blogger Ann Imig in 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin, and this year will be presented in 32 cities across the country during the week of Mother’s Day.

Each show features a cast of local writers. Each cast member has under five minutes to tell her story. From an unexpected (“irresponsible,” and celebrated) late pregnancy to bringing a grandmother into the internet age, from the heartbreak of quickly and unexpectedly losing a child to the surprise of hearing your unmarried child is pregnant, this year’s stories are told candidly, from the heart and in ways that will make you laugh and cry and probably mumble to yourselves “me, too. Me, too.”

It’s real life. And we could all use a dose of that.
