Announcing our winter production,
Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler!

A comedy that swaddles a serious issue

A comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.  

"A special kind of show. Empathetic and enjoyable ... it all rings utterly true." 

— Chris Jones , Chicago Tribune

Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today, she
is in dirty yoga pants, covered in breast milk, trying to comfort a screaming newborn. Isolated in a sleepy Long Island suburb while her commuter husband works long hours, Jessie is desperate to talk to anyone besides Food Network. 
So when she spies a fellow new mom and neighbor, Lina, at the local Stop & Shop, the two moms agree to meet for coffee during naptime, and a fast friendship is born. One coffee quickly becomes a daily coffee, as Jessie and Lina laugh through the highs and lows of motherhood.

The production features NHTC company members Melissa Andersen (Adrienne), Deena Nicol-Blifford (Lina), and Jenny Schuck (Jessie). Ruben Ortiz (Mitchell) joins the NHTC company members in the cast. Ruben is the Artistic Director for A Broken Umbrella Theatre and is making his first appearance on the NHTC Stage. The production is directed by company member Marty Tucker.
