Edith Freni's Momma is a new play about making sorry excuses for bad behavior. He was adopted; she developed young. Her mom was a yo-yo dieter; his dad cheated. Now they're all grown-up, married and want kids of their own. It's all fun and games until someone gets shot. Two couples-mirror images of each other-explore the effects of genetics, sexual dysfunction and recreational drug use in this darkly comic, totally non-linear take on American family life.
Edith Freni's plays include Waterborn, Things Rank, A Body Drops, The Workaround, Baby Girl, and Soft in the Belly. Her work has been staged at venues such as E.S.T., Center Stage New York, The Producer's Club, The Present Company Theatorium, The Tank, The Brick Theatre, The Kraine Theatre, Collective Unconscious, and C.S.V.. Currently pursuing her M.F.A. in playwriting at Tisch, Edith is also an active member of Youngblood and Partial Comfort Productions, for whom she co-created and co-executive produced the original Battle of the Bards; in 2006, PCP was named a NYTheatre.com "Person of the Year."
