In this plodding one-woman show, Toronto writer-performer Anne Marie Scheffler comes across as one of those insufferable types who thinks no one else in the world has had children.

Alas, her cloying tales of squabbling toddlers, macaroni dinners and unappreciative husbands have been told many times before, and usually better.

She does a decent Céline Dion imitation, and she’s easy on the eyes in her fetching blue sundress.

But, for an aspiring actress, she seems painfully ill at ease onstage. Indeed, with her heavy breathing and laboured delivery, it appears that she’s giving birth to her 50-minute monologue rather than performing it.

— Morley Walker

From the official Fringe program:

Best known for her six one-woman shows and her one-hour TV comedy special, this Second City alumna is back! With parental humour!

Nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award, Scheffler is at her best as she tells it like it is! Sleep deprivation has never been so funny! "A major talent! We’re talking star quality here!" - Edmonton Journal
