Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Former Winnipegger Mary-Jo Dionne’s heartfelt delivery brings this 45-minute tale to luminous life.
Funny, moving and intimate, her storytelling is infused with warmth and wit as she regales her audience with a play-by-play account of her long journey to motherhood.
The Vancouver-based Dionne took a more circuitous route than most, but it was worth the trip — for her and her audience.
From adoption fails and fertility woes to morning sickness and hormonally charged revelations, Glowing is an artfully conceived comedic romp, but ultimately, it’s a love story — one born of blood, sweat and vomit.
— Pat St. Germain
Glowing: A Reproduction Production is the one-woman show for any person who has ever given birth. Or been born.
For a woman born without a biological clock, transitioning into the role of mommyhood at the age of 40 was anything but a glowing experience. For Mary-Jo Dionne, all-day "morning" sickness was the easy part. (Who says all pregnant women "glow", anyway?)
"Hilarious, heartfelt, and ultimately uplifting..." - Kristina Matisic, TV executive and personality, Oprah Winfrey Network
