Award-winning playwright Lisa Ramirez tackles the challenges women still face in motherhood in the dramatic one-woman show Exit Cuckoo (nanny in motherland). She portrays a Latina nanny in the Upper East Side of NYC who must navigate the crises of her client in addition to the feelings of abandonment of her own child in order to make her way in America. This challenging work explores the struggle between child-rearing and careers, how the line between nanny and mother grows ever thinner, and how women are often forced to relate to one another solely through the detrimental lens of socio-economic status.
