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.
