Lea Whitcher plays with the absurdity of idealized and toxic mother images.
In this abysmal, humorous one-woman show, Lea Whitcher plays with the absurdity of idealized and toxic images of motherhood and dares to give an unembellished account of her first fourteen weeks as a mother. As the art figure "Lea Blair Whitcher," she links her biographical experiences with current discourses on motherhood and sketches utopian models of life in a society beyond patriarchy. Whitcher plays with the tools of stand-up comedy: while she deals with everyday situations and social clichés with plenty of wicked humor, she also reflects on what we find funny and why.
