    Goldman-Sherman masterfully uses action to create character in this short monologue. The audience recognizes the protagonist by her activity: nonstop washing and drying of dishes.

    With that as a baseline, the dialogue accents even more strongly her anger, irony, disgust (sometimes comic), and demoralization.

    HILARIOUS. Complete truth with hysterical delivery. Magnifico. I mean I don't want to ruin it for the viewer with any synopsis because it's bloody brilliant. Everyone in the world will love this, tell their friends about it and never EVER forget it. It's amazing!

    Sharp, insightful, funny and devastating — In this tight monologue, Goldman-Sherman digs into the taxonomy of emotional labor, the work of mothers and mothering, the quiet preoccupations and invisible efforts that women perform, all day, everyday. You may find yourself nodding as you read this, your eyes widening in recognition. No wonder it's getting international productions - the author has tapped into the universality of roles, fighting back with wit and candor. Brava!
