A&E Highlight – Cry It Out @ Merrimack Repertory Theatre
Cry It Out
Merrimack Repertory Theatre
Now through May 19
This new comedy throws two very different women into an unlikely, but fierce, friendship. On maternity leave for the first time, Jessie and Lina tiptoe to their shared backyard for a precious coffee and a chat during naptime.
This play takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the dilemma of returning to work and how class impacts parenthood and friendship. A whip-smart tale from Molly Smith Metzler (“Orange is the New Black,” “Shameless”), “Cry It Out” captures the belly laughs, raw rage and secret confidences that come with the early days of parenthood.
