Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Please stifle your groans when you read the subtitle of fringe veteran Kim Zeglinski’s latest offering: “Confessions of Motherhood and Middle Age.” It’s hard to believe there could possibly be anything new to say about this well-mined subject, but this clever writer-producer-performer, who brought Stretchmarks and Breast Friends to the fringe in previous years, finds both lots to say and truly original ways to say it in this one-hour, one-woman, high-energy show.
From the moment the audience joins in singing Que Sera Sera in the opening sequence, Zeglinski has a hold of them. The Winnipegger steers them through her childhood, student days, marriage and motherhood, with honest revelations that never lose the funny. Much of the humour stems from Zeglinski’s rapid-fire delivery, which could exhaust an audience, but the ease with which she morphs from character to character — a beat poet, a leader of a sex seminar, a teacher writing report cards, herself in labour — keeps things moving forward smoothly.
