broken motherhood museum
broken motherhood museum, written and directed by Miriam Tabb, is a poetic installation theatre piece that exposes the deeply personal struggles women face throughout pregnancy and parenting. While experiencing this living exhibit, the audience is encouraged to engage with the characters as they make difficult, often nontraditional, and taboo choices regarding their bodies, lovers, children, and sexuality. broken motherhood museum is a play in which the audience is challenged to actively view and experience the burden of unrealistic expectations in motherhood we place on women and ourselves.
