Mother knows best. Or in this case, Mom’s the Word.

That’s the new comedic production currently running at Prairie Theatre Exchange looking at the world of motherhood. Anecdotes, or “mom”-ologues as PTE calls them, make up this refreshed play written by six Vancouver actors.

“I’m looking forward to introducing it to a new generation of parents,” said PTE artistic director Robert Metcalfe. “But I also think it will remind those of us whose small-child-parenting days are behind us, just what an incredible journey we took with our little ones.”

Five performer-parents take the stage in partnership with The Belfry Theatre in Victoria for the updated script of this classic play, sharing some horrifyingly and hilarious parenting truths.

Mom’s the Word stars actors Trish Cooper as Alison, Sarah Donald as Jill, Yumi Ogawa as Linda, Jennifer Paterson as Deborah and Lisa C. Ravensbergen as Robin.

The play runs now through November 27. For tickets and showtimes, visit PTE.mb.ca.
