Metzler’s sympathetic yet brutally honest play brings characters to the stage not normally seen. Three women, diverse in all ways… except that they have all recently given birth and are coping with everything which comes with being the main caretaker. Funny and uniquely insightful, written by a young mother.
"As a window into the challenges facing mothers, Cry It Out offers in-depth insights and raises issues that ring true."
- LOS ANGELES TIMES
"The writing achieves a number of very notable things: It expresses and honors the diversity of reactions to the disruptive arrival of a baby; it observes that there are no right answers; it captures how this particular part of being human puts the most demands on you when you are least able to deal with them. But what impressed me the most about Cry It Out was how compassionately it understands how much the decisions couples make in those early weeks affect the later footprint of their lives."
