"Captivates with its heart, humour, and honesty" —The Georgia Straight
"About not just motherhood but female personhood" —Vancouver Sun
"It’s easy to see why Mom’s the Word 3: Nest 1/2 Empty has already been extended and is on its way to selling out" —Vancouver Presents
"I just loved play as did the ladies I went with. I have seen the previous Mom's the Word performances and knew what to expect - the others had not. I told them to expect something funny, real and a surprise or two. It was great seeing their reactions. The show lived up to expectations and we all loved it."
"Hysterical (literally), extremely well done and moving."
-Richard, New Westminster
"This is one of the best shows I've seen this season."
"This was a "girls night out" for myself and three friends. We are all 60-65 years in age and this show was such fun for us as so many of the topics covered rang true for us!! None of us had seen the earlier productions but that didn't matter. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lots of laughs and some serious thoughtful bits as well."
-Corry, North Vancouver
"As usual, the girls have out done themselves in this latest installment of "Mum's the Word". The hilarious look at so many of the issues facing this age group is bang on. And in the midst of the hilarity attached to the minor issues, the appropriate seriousness attached to the more significant and painful issues of aging is skillfully handled. Great performance!"
-Sharon, North Vancouver
"I thought it was a brilliant and very courageous performance"
"Excellent play, with stellar performances, delivered in a direct and heartfelt fashion. There was a nice balance between straight out comedy nuanced with more personal, meaningful story lines. A performance not to be missed by Baby Boomers!!"
"Just saw it with Mom and my sisters! Made us laugh and cry. Loved it!!"
-Diane, North Vancouver
"Loved these ladies. Watched them 20 years ago and they are just as funny. My girlfriends and I totally identified with what they are going through. Looking forward to seeing Mom's the Word 4!"
"My husband and I loved this play. We laughed, relating to much of it and were deeply saddened at times. It is wonderful to go to theatre which elicits such a range of emotions."
"For me it was a perfect night out with a girlfriend, dinner and drinks before, both within walking distance to the theater. With a performance that hit a good mix of happy/sad, but ultimately very real."
"I was surprised by my reaction to a lot of the scenes. I was instantly connected with the stories and my life became a little lighter. WELL DONE!!! I am already looking forward to the next sequel."
"I just saw it Wednesday and think I need to go again. Have loved all their plays but this is my fave!! Gather your Mom friends and prepare for a great and at times poignant night."
