Cry It Out
STARTS JANUARY 22, 2021 | A remount of the Just Theater production
By Molly Smith Metzler | Directed By Molly Aaronson-Gelb
Molly Smith Metzler’s Cry It Out is a provocative yet hilariously honest look at motherhood today. Set in a part of Long Island where class lines and property lines bump up against each other, new parents Lina and Jessie form a postpartum bond over coffee and nap times. But maternity leave only lasts so long. Who is privileged enough to make which impossible choice? This deeply moving and contemporary comedy highlights the power of female friendship and the impossibility of having it all. Called “urgent, uproarious and poignant” in the San Francisco Chronicle, this remount of Just Theater’s critically acclaimed Bay Area Premiere features actors Martha Brigham, Justin DuPuis, Lauren English, and Lauren Spencer reprising their roles.
“Cry It Out...makes an urgent, uproarious and poignant case for no longer consigning the unvarnished truths of motherhood to whispers in mothers’ circles...first-rate performances. “
