ABOUT MAMA JUGGS Mama Juggs" - channels the voices of three generations of women in Anita's family as they deal with bra stuffing, breastfeeding and last stage breast cancer. Written as a promise to her mother, who died of breast cancer before 50 - it seeks to challenge cultural taboos and stereotypes surrounding breast health and body image. Woodley wrestles with these issues through a diversity of theatrical styles, including a cappella negro spirituals, comedy, straight talk, improv and audience interaction.
"When she's at her peak, it feels like she's channeling these characters, not performing them," said theatre critic Byron Woods of The Independent Weekly. University hosts have also praised Woodley's shows, highlighting their value for students and community members. "Indeed, the audience is transfixed by Mama Juggs, as she relays to you the rather vivid and emotional consequences of womanhood; the phenomenology of motherhood; the complex meaning of having breasts," said the coordinator of Student Life & Multicultural Programs at HACC-Gettysburg.
