Following its debut in two sold-out performances last year, “Listen to Your Mother Indy” is back to celebrate Mother’s Day 2020 by “giving motherhood a microphone.” Despite the shelter-in-place restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the show must go on. The Fearless Leap will premiere the all-new storytelling show online to raise money for women in business.
“Listen to Your Mother” takes audiences on a well-crafted, 90-minute journey of diverse, true stories about motherhood – being a mom, having a mom, losing a mom, finding a mom – as many interpretations on the theme of mothering as you can imagine.
Author Ann Imig founded “Listen to Your Mother” in Wisconsin in 2010. The show became an instant sensation, growing into a grassroots phenomenon spanning 50+ cities and 250 productions across North America, an acclaimed anthology from Putnam Books, and a charitable giving movement that raised thousands of dollars for nonprofit causes supporting women and families in need.
Producer Haley Lawrence of Carmel auditioned dozens of local men and women and chose 12 of the most diverse storytellers to delight and inspire audiences. From hilarious and heartwarming, to emotionally intense and profound, “Listen to Your Mother” entertains and energizes.
