About the Book

What happens when a professional woman finds out she’s pregnant and delivers a little girl only six months into her pregnancy? The reality of giving birth to a one lb. 15-ounce baby is at the centre of Miracle Mother, a play about premature birth and neo-natal care, but it is also a heartfelt and wickedly funny look at the entire birth experience, especially as reflected in the mother-daughter relationship.


“…one the year’s most inventive and hilarious comedies.”
-Toronto Star

“The dialogue was written with a keen sense of understanding that never preached or apologized for the shortcomings of the characters, just allowed us to take in the art of theatre.”
