The Doula

Randy Pirate Productions—Tom Hendry Warehouse

3 pregnant women and a training doula navigate clashing personalities and morals while they wait for a prenatal class. The play was very interesting as someone who was not the target audience. I knew lots of jokes were supposed to be funny but I just didn’t get them. Two jokes everyone got were pregnant ladies twerking and one of the characters water/soup breaking. It’s humor is targeted to a specific demographic.  A lot of the older women in the room killed themselves laughing. The characters were very well defined and wonderfully acted. The commitment to their characters made a lot of the jokes that I might not have found funny land within me. I did end up learning a lot, so if nothing else go to prep yourself for being pregnant. This play was joy for me but you may have to have given birth before you will love this show.
