Menopause Mama: A one-woman show by Rose Weaver
Witty. Sassy. Inspirational. Menopause Mama is an entertaining one-
woman show, full of songs, stories and skits, created to celebrate positive, can-do attitudes associated with mid-life changes.
For the very first time, Rose Weaver is bringing Menopause Mama to southern Rhode
Island, with a one-night performance at Music at Lily Pads, 27 North Rd., Peace Dale, RI.,
in the sanctuary hall of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County.
"Menopause Mama is a wonderful theatrical experience, regardless of whether or not you have any interest in menopause and whether or not you're female," says author Dr. Christiane Northrup (The Wisdom of Menopause). "I was moved to tears watching Rose make art and music out of the essence of my life's work about women's wisdom and women's bodies.
When she first wrote Menopause Mama, Rose Weaver noticed the lack of artistic
representation in today's media that depicts what people experience as they go through life, physically and mentally. Through story and song, Weaver aims to generate conversation about aging; how it affects everyone, regardless of age or gender, and depicts the struggles and triumphs, the tears and the laughter of menopause.
"Even today most people choose not to speak about the change of life,
and sweep their questions and concerns under the rug," says Weaver, 68. "Menopause Mama is here to tell them we're not buying into society's negative images about growing older. We're wiser, sexier and more fulfilled. And we're not nearly done!
