MY NAME IS MOMMY
MY NAME IS MOMMY is a one woman show written & performed by April Wish and directed & developed by Jessica Lynn Johnson. It premiered at SOLOFEST 2019, the largest solo theatre festival on the West Coast, and went on to a sold out run at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2019, garnering an ENCORE! Producer's Award.

MY NAME IS MOMMY celebrates the exhilaration of motherhood, balancing poetic passages with humorous detours into the modern realities of raising small children. April Wish moves forward and backward through time, exploring the pressures and the promises of parenthood.

Unapologetically feminist and powerfully tender, MY NAME IS MOMMY studies a matriarchal family's traditions, exploring the connection between generations through Wish's lens as both a mother and a daughter. The show follows her journey as she looks for the bits and pieces of herself she left behind when she stepped into her role as Mother - buried under mountains of toys and traditions.

In this dynamic and often hilarious piece, April Wish has crafted a love letter to her daughter, Clementine, as well as to the little girl she used to be herself.

PRESS:

"...April Wish has a way of telling her own particular story in such a way that feels bold and fresh and new. She is brutally honest but also sweetly and intensely lovable. April writes so beautifully that we are laughing and crying and empathizing and shocked all in the same breath. Her candor and her joyous abandon are intoxicating [...] Its funny, touching, unique, riveting and very, very important." - Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, NoHo Arts

"A moving, dynamic examination of motherhood past and present... Raw, honest and often hilarious... Full of emotion and power..." - Mary Mallory, The Tolucan Times

"I have never seen a better, more emotionally searing description of motherhood and the impossible task that entails, written and performed by an incredibly talented writer and actress telling the true story of her own life.  Remarkably brave, this 75-minute long solo performance bounces back and forth, as parenting itself does, from remembering your own childhood, to seeing yourself in your children.  It beautifully and perfectly captures the exhaustion, joy and everyday challenges and thrills of creating a new life.  Poetically written and masterfully acted.  Im weeping as I write this review, it moved me so. Simply unforgettable..." - Joy Bennett, Jewish Journal
