Back to School Comedy Relief: Mom's Night Out

Moms just want to have fun, once the frantic back to school fever has cooled.  A fresh, new "Breastcentric" comedy by Chicago playwright, Melody Swink goes out on National Tour, Sept 23rd.   This fun romp has been hailed as "Riotous, hilarious, insightful, quirky and inspiring".  "Five Star" rating from Chicago Trip Advisors makes it a girls night out must-see.  Visit for cities/tour dates.Proud to be in partnership with The American Cancer Society, raising funds for breast cancer awareness.  Comedy for a Cure!

Backpacks, pencils, med forms... and martinis?  The dog days of summer are winding down and the "woof, woof" call of bags and Baggies for lunches and the furtive double-checks to see who's driving the kids on the odd-numbered days... has begun.
Get an "A" in Back-to-school planning by putting September 23rd on your calendar.  It's time for Mom's Night Out with a Mission.  Gather the girls for cosmo's, or make it a memorable night of girlish fun, wit, nostalgia and laughs.  A new "breastcentric" comedy hit Chicago by storm recently, and the topic is near, dear and daring to any mom - breasts.  Can you take along your daughter?  Sure.  One character (portrayed by comedy veteran) Lauran September is an 11 year old gymnast, who laments her non-development.  Penny's awkward moments provide the most hilarious and touching moments, when her quandary about "what am I going to become?  Gwyneth Paltrow?  She hasn't pumped up the plastic.  Scarlett Johannsen?  Wow.  Overwhelming."  She even contemplates not developing at all... hmmm.  It's a thought.  No stifling bras, nothing to get in the way of her gymnastics moves.
Back to school Mom's Night Out.  Can you tote along your best fashionista pal, who is happily childfree?  Absolutely.  The chain-smoking lesbian supermodel from Romania who wishes her "vinkies" weren't airbrushed to "make them look bigger in pictures.  Eeeez very tragic,"  is uber-hilarious.
The report card for this one-woman "hilarious" tour de force is an resounding A+.  "Five stars" were bestowed by The Chicago Trip Advisor, and the Chicago Tribune's Nina Metz praised "Swink clearly has hear heart in the right place."  Referring to Swink's commitment to breast cancer awareness fundraising and perhaps to the "poignant, insightful, and moving" message of The D-Cups.
The D-Cup Diatribes is a one-woman tour de force.  The audience participates in a scene from a Breast Cancer Self-Love Rehab Center.  Tears and laughter abound.  A mom's ideal escape - it's all about the breasts we fed our babies with, and the perceptions the world has of them.  From size advantage/disadvantage, to the mother/daughter inheritance and expectations.  The central theme is based on our relationship with our own mirror.  Very poignant and obviously a rich mine of quirky, fun and deeply personal revelations.
Swink steers a clear eye to the male-dominated advertising agenda of recent times, and a music video opens the show with clips from the early 1900's to modern times.  The corset contraptions of yesteryear have been replaced by the scary-skinny models on international runways today.  Our collective predilection for the unattainable ideal of feminine beauty provedes juicy fodder for Swink's pen and perceptions.  It is simultaneous tender and hilarious.  Her characters are "funny, fragile, willful, ferocious, sweet, indignant and joyful", according to the Chicago Trip Advisor.  
The D-Cup Diatribes is in partnership with The American Cancer Society, raising funds for breast cancer awareness.  Call it...  Comedy for a Cure!
