Lemur Mom
"Lemur Mom (Because We Can't All Be Tiger Moms)" is one woman's eye-opening journey into life on the spectrum. Megan Dolan has the distinct feeling she's not the right mom. As she navigates support groups, child psychologists, and playdates trying to help her son communicate, she makes countless wrong turns along the way.

This hilarious and touching one person show explores the power of resilience, kindness, and the value of showing up. Megan forges a path from believing she's the wrong mom to knowing she's the only mom for her unique and gifted son.

This limited engagement will sell out quickly so get your tickets NOW!

"(Lemur Mom) is so wonderfully constructed and so exquisitely performed that it leaves no doubt in Megans ability to grip an audience with her story. - NoHoArtsDistrict.com

"Its hard to make motherhood in the trenches funny, hopeful, relatable, and reassuring but Megans show does just that." - LA Parent Review
