Cry It Out
By Molly Smith Metzler; directed by Molly Aaronson-Gelb. Presented in association with Custom Made Theatre. Cry It Out is a hilarious, provocative, honest look at parenthood, class and the impossibility of "having it all." Set in part of Long Island where class lines and property lines bump up against each other, Cry It Out is the story of Jesse, a Manhattan lawyer trapped in the suburbs with her newborn and Lina her next-door neighbor who is a working class long-islander and college drop out. With nothing in common but Baby Bjorns, sleep deprivation, and Nose Fridas, their form as quick bond that reaches as far as their baby monitors will stretch.
