About the Play

MotherStruck! sets forth Staceyann Chin’s personal journey to motherhood as a single woman, lesbian and activist who does not have health insurance or a “serious, stable financial set up,” but wants to have a child. Told through Chin’s uniquely personal and poetic lens, this solo show explores how the process changed her life and how she makes peace with what she learns from this profound experience.  

"'MotherStruck!'...is a warm, political and often funny affirmation of endurance and personal happiness" - Chicago Tribune

"A heartwrenching and humorous interrogation into maternal inheritance and motherhood, 'MotherStruck!' swiftly moves from Chin's fleeing of her homeland to the birth of her daughter through an engaging and powerful narrative." - Windy City Times

"Chin is playful, coy, and magnetic onstage." - Chicago Reader
