NURSERY RHYMES (Zoom Version) by Jan Ewing

£5.00

A romp into the concerns of 21st-century parenting, Nursery Rhymes involves thirty-somethings Irene and Chip Mangus who have been arguing about having a late child. She wants one, he doesn’t. Hoping to change Chip’s mind, Irene invites an older couple, Frank and Marge Stevens, to an arm-twisting party. Marge gave birth at thirty-eight. Her son is now twelve, so Irene expects support. But, Chip is prepared, Marge is menopausal, and nothing can ever be assumed.

REVIEWS FOR STAGE VERSION

Ewing paints his characters in broad brushstrokes of present-day Americans. Yet these issues are simultaneously eternal and of the moment. — http://bit.ly/NR_TheaterIsEasy 

Beautifully written and skillfully played, [it’s] funny, welcoming, and deeply sincere. Jan Ewing has given us an astute piece about a timely and ever-growing topic.  — http://bit.ly/NR_DramaQueen

This clever parlor comedy gave us a well-written point-counterpoint about family and the creation thereof, complete with mother issues, what happens at menopause, and even the famed body-clock: both male and female.  — http://bit.ly/NR_OuterStage
