    MOMMY DANCES WITH THE DEVIL is a surprise at every turn. It starts off as a normal story of a new mother dealing with life as a baby and quickly turns into the supernatural. Hilarious and heartwarming, it is an engaging tale of what women will do in order to belong.

    This script is a blast—a clever, theatrical comedy. I love that it deals with the challenges parents of very young children face—since this is often such a private time in people's lives, there aren't a lot of honest theatrical representations of it. This play does that, with delicious comedic roles for women and magic!

    A delightful mix of absurdity, menace, (and real relatability for those who’ve ventured through those early, sometimes surreal years of parenthood). A supernatural "Mean Girls" for mommies.
