Listen To Your Mother: Wilmington

Listen To Your Mother: Wilmington

Do something different for Mother’s Day - bring the mom you love the most to dinner and a show where motherhood rocks the mic. This year at World Cafe Live at the Queen, the national show Listen To Your Mother goes local. Join WSTW’s Nancy Johnson, Delaware’s Funniest Woman Shari Short, West Chester Story Slam winner Luann Sims, and so many other amazing local writers and authors as they give motherhood a voice.

Listen to Your Mother features live readings by local writers on the beauty, the beast, and the barely-rested of motherhood, in celebration of Mother’s Day. Born of the creative work of mothers who publish on-line, each production is directed, produced, and performed by local communities, for local communities. The mission of each Listen to Your Mother production is to take the audience on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor. Listen to Your Mother aims to support motherhood creatively through artistic expression, and also financially–through contributions to non-profit organizations supporting families in need

We'd also like to invite you to take some time to learn about Family Promise of Northern New Castle County, the official charity of Listen To Your Mother: Wilmington. Their primary goal is to get – and keep - families on their feet. Not only will they gain community awareness, but 10% of our ticket proceeds will go directly to them.

You can also read about the 23 other cities showcasing their own stories– each with their own flavor, and view videos from shows past to get more familiar with our show.
