Mom's The Word: Talkin' Turkey

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and everyone’s favourite moms are back to cook up another theatrical feast with the world premiere of Mom’s the Word: Talkin’ Turkey, playing October 27, 2022 to January 1, 2023 at the Granville Island Stage.

First conceived in 1993 by a group of Vancouver actors who had become “exhausted, bedraggled, amateur mothers,” Mom’s the Word became an immediate hit.

The first show premiered at the Arts Club in 1995, as the cast of moms shared their experiences of new parenthood and found international acclaim. Mom’s The Word: Talkin’ Turkey soon became one of the most popular Australian stage productions.

From the gifts to the gab to the garb, the moms are here to show that the holidays are just as dysfunctional as they are jolly. Turning the “season of giving” into the “season of forgiving,” each mom offers up her yuletide truths with a hilarious cup o’ cheer.

Wrapped in a big, recycled bow, this brand-new story from the moms you love will no doubt make for a festive, fun-filled night of wit, joy and irreverence.

According to Director Wayne Harrison, “This has been yet another entertaining and rewarding collaboration with the members of the Mom’s the Word Collective, helping them assemble and fine-tune their heartwarming/soul-destroying tales of stuffing, roasting, burning, and gluttonizing turkeys during generations of holiday adventures and horrors.”

Arts Club Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran added, “The moms simply are the Arts Club. These women have been central to our work since the mid-90s when they first shared with us the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful about motherhood—experiences I am now living first-hand! We’re delighted to have them back, bringing their charm, humour, and local stories to our Granville Island Stage for the holidays with world premiere of this Silver Commission.”
