Bear with Me

It may be a one joke play, but it is a very funny joke! Diane Flack’s experience as a new Mother, spiced up by the fact that she is a lesbian, is the same experience we all have. Not so funny at the time, but absolutely hilarious after the fact. At times I laughed so hard, tears were running down my face. Other times, it was just a ho hum, been there done that reaction.
But I have to admit that while the play is really just a long stand up comedy routine, and while there is only one joke, the women can really put it over. The structure held up and the laughs kept coming.

    It was funny at times but, really, you gotta be a woman to really appreciate this – actually, a mother.I expect this place to cut the birth rate in Canada in half.
