What happens when a detail-obsessed woman tries to time the birth of her child to occur during her favorite month of the year? Nine months of chaos – in utero and out!
A hilarious and poignant look at motherhood and the need to control, October Baby is a show not to miss. Los Angeles audiences got their first glimpse of the 55-minute piece when Brooke performed the infamous “B&B” scene during the “Soaring Solo Showcase” on October 9, 2016. The world premiere took place on February 19, 2017 at the Whitefire Theatre as part of Solofest 2017. Since then, the show has been a featured act at the Hollywood Fringe Festival (June 2017), Houston Fringe Festival (Sept. 2017) and the Los Angeles Women’s Festival (March 2018). Audiences are raving about this show:
“A brutally honest, bold & beautiful show. It goes straight for the heart and then right to the soul!”
“Brooke is a force of nature. Funny, dramatic, real.”
“The musicality and timing of this piece is a study in storytelling.”
“A powerhouse of intelligence, wit and humor.”
“Hysterically funny, entirely touching…this is why I come to see live theatre.”
