‘Motherhood Out Loud’

Next Act’s final offering of the year is a monthlong run-up to Mothers’ Day.

Motherhood presents a mosaic of pieces by 14 all-star playwrights, each riffing on the idea of motherhood in one form or another. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant and always honest, this work will resonate with anyone who’s had a maternal figure in their life — or known what it’s like to be one.

April 7 to May 7 at Next Act Theatre, Milwaukee. $28 to $38. nextact.org.
