CRY IT OUT

by Molly Smith Metzler

Connecticut Premiere

Three New Mothers.
Three Different Backgrounds.
One Shared Struggle.

Cooped up on maternity leave and starved for conversation, Jessie invites her funny and forthright neighbor Lina, also a new mom, for coffee on the patio between their duplexes. Despite their vastly different finances, they become fast friends during naptimes—while someone watches from the mansion on the cliff overlooking Jessie’s yard. This comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the dilemma of returning to work, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship.

Limited Run:

July 12-28, 2019

“They will engage you, possibly at times enrage you, drive you to both laughter and tears and definitely provoke conversation.”

“The quality of this small production is astounding. Thrown Stone’s short annual season only amplifies the urgency to get out and see this production before it is too late.”

The Newtown Bee »

“Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler is a candid, intimate piece of theater that surprises, illuminates and thrills at every turn … It’s theatre so superb, the end result is truly electrifying.”

Jim Ruocco »

The Ridgefield Press »

“…immediately grips the attention of the audience, stimulates the mind, touches the emotions, and captivates us with the story line, drawing us right in, in such an intimate setting that it makes us feel as if we are eyewitnesses…”
