Figure Out How To Live - Sharon

Goshen, Connecticut

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present                                 

Situation: Sharon has just given birth. It's her first real moment alone with the baby, and she's attempting to convince the baby (and herself) that she'll be a better parent than her own parents were. Plus, she's never breastfed before.

Subject Matter: Motherhood, New Baby, Parenthood, Breastfeeding, Wonder, Discovery

Note from Playwright: Though pregnancy is plenty physical, it's also conceptual (because the baby's not there yet.) Having the infant placed in your arms can change your world forever. You fall in love suddenly, deeply, madly. Not only are your hopes as high as they can be, but simultaneously you're achingly aware of your own limitations.
