MOTHER LOAD is a hilarious exposé of the cutthroat world of competitive parenting. Moms everywhere feel the pressure to be perfect, but in New York City, that pressure is turned up to 11.
Nothing could have prepared Amy Wilson for the high-pressure environment of Manhattan motherhood, where a toddler's birthday party must be catered, a stroller costs eight hundred dollars, and nursery school applications require thoughtful essay writing. From prenatal yoga to preschool interviews, actress and writer Wilson struggles to throw off the "Mother Load" of unrealistic
expectations, ignore the competitive "sanctimommies" lurking in every playgroup, and somehow find the time to enjoy her kids.
Anyone who has fed their kids dinosaur chicken nuggets three times this week will identify with Amy's guilt, and cheer as she frees herself from it. You'll love MOTHER LOAD whether you are a mom-- or just have one!
