Staceyann Chin wanted to be a mother. But she knew from the start that motherhood wouldn’t be easy—and it wouldn’t end up being the sitcom version, either.
For starters, she was single. Not to mention a lesbian, a financially challenged spoken-word artist without health insurance, and a woman who grew up without having much of a parental figure in her own life. When she was a child in Jamaica, Chin was abandoned by her mother to the care of a cold, insensitive aunt. When Chin was an angry teenager trapped in a culture that was less than hospitable to gay people, she vowed to never have children. But once she escaped to New York and found the space to live on her own terms, she began to rethink that rash promise. MotherStruck! explores Chin’s journey down the less-traveled path to family, finding the humor in artificial insemination, pregnancy, birth, and the profound changes that come with raising a daughter.
Written and performed by Staceyann Chin, this one-woman show has been hailed as a “cathartic bullet train” by Village Voice. In the director’s chair is Cynthia Nixon, a woman who is instantly recognizable for her role as Miranda on Sex in the City, but also a Tony-winning Broadway veteran seen in Rabbit Hole. Joining Nixon behind the scenes is Rosie O’Donnell, who produced the show in partnership with Culture Project.
