Motherhood Out Loud Coming to the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts

A Caffrey Girl Production to Stage 2nd Play Written by Women, for Women in May at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts


Just in time for Mother’s Day …Don’t miss the very special production of “Motherhood Out Loud”

April, 2016. Pacific Grove, CA. Coming to Carmel in May, the perfect play to take your Mom for Mother’s Day – as well as your sister, brother and friends -  is being staged by Chris Caffrey, founder of A Caffrey Girl Production. After her success with “Parallel Lives” in February, Caffrey is stepping into a new maternal theme with the funny and poignant production of “Motherhood Out Loud” at the Carl Cherry Theatre for the Arts.

According to Caffrey, “Of course, everyone has had a Mother, Stepmother or Foster Mom, and inevitably we all have an array of special memories – whether good, bad or perhaps indifferent. We chose “Motherhood Out Loud” partially to celebrate the Mother’s Day season and also because of its thoughtful approach to such a universal and important character in all of our lives.”
