Who's Driving the Bus?!? My Year as a Kindergarten Mom is a one-woman, tour- de-force comedy especially for parents by Chicago actor/writer Tracy Egan, based on her daughter's kindergarten year. Forget college, the real "letting go" for parents comes when they strap on a backpack on their child and send them off to kindergarten - along with those looming questions like "will the other kids be smarter and better behaved?" Parents themselves metaphorically return to grade school when their children begin it, and themes of regression, competition, and the basic desire to "fit in" and "be liked" surface during the kindergarten field-trip, the parent-teacher conference and the PTA meeting.
Who's Driving the Bus?!? My Year as a Kindergarten Mom blows the lid off all things grade school as Egan portrays 15 different characters including the overachieving mother, the kindergarten teacher, and the grade school social worker.
