Listen To Your Mother

Date: Sunday, May 12, 2019

Showtime: 7:00 PM

Listen to Your Mother is a community-oriented live storytelling event that celebrates the beauty, the heartbreak, the trials and the triumphs that are motherhood. Directed and produced by Stacey Conner and Elise Raimi, Listen to Your Mother culminates in a live performance at the Bing Crosby Theater. Nine local writers will take the stage at 7pm on Sunday, May 12th to read original pieces that will take you on an emotional journey through the triumphs, tribulations, victory and heartbreak of motherhood.

10% of ticket proceeds from the Listen to Your Mother show will be donated to FosterWA. FosterWA engages with foster children, families, and communities to obtain positive outcomes through innovative programs and relationship building with state welfare agencies and community partners.

Stacey Conner and Elise Raimi met ten years ago when they were both overly-educated, East-Coast transplant and stay at home moms to families built through birth and adoption. They are both daughters of Jewish men who insist on wearing black socks with sandals, so obviously, it was love at first sight. They are beyond thrilled to help people tell their stories through Listen To Your Mother and to celebrate the community building that storytelling facilitates in their adopted hometown.
