Some description

Jessie is a corporate lawyer in a Manhattan firm. Lina is a community-college dropout and born-and-bred Long Islander. They don’t seem to have anything in common, but marooned at home with infants, they strike up a fast friendship. In the yard between their houses—as far as their baby monitors will reach—they bond over sleep deprivation, unreliable childcare, and “having it all.” A candid comedy about who gets to make which hard choices in the tinderbox of parenthood and class in the United States. 


Funny and sharp.

The Washington Post

Swift-moving and laugh-out-loud entertaining.

DC Metro Theater Arts

A beautiful, believable picture of how imperfect new parents strive to cope in a society that offers little support.
