Sweatpants & High Heels is a comedic almost one woman show about Dee, a mom who loses herself after having her three kids. When a friend wishes Dee 50 more years of "being a mom" at her 10 year anniversary party, Dee fears she will die before achieving more than being a "mother and wife". She decides to take a secret vacation to follow her dreams and find herself again. But will she lose everything in the process?
THE BIRTH OF SP&HH
After leaving my full time job (that I loved) as a wellness coach, I came home to take care of my three young (all under 5 at the time) children who were dealing with extreme food allergies, asthma and eczema. During the that time my husband also started having major health problems. Let's just say the ER felt like a second home. One day, during our regular group bathroom break I felt so overwhelmed that I laid down on the bathroom floor and just broke down crying. I was so tired and had lost hope that I would ever be able to pursue my dreams as an actress. In the middle of my tears I remember hearing my 1 year old let a full out baby belly laugh.
The kind that gets into your bones. It was like an angel pulling me up out of my own crap. I was lifted out of my body and I saw it.
A mom lying on the floor, laughing and crying. A toddler standing over her loopy mother, arms crossed her brow furrowed wondering what is going on with her normally sane mother, the 4 year old humming happily on the toilet, a baby boy pretending his mom's make up brushes were having the last samurai battle to end all battles - happy.
This was actually quite hilarious.
I thought to myself, "maybe there were other moms who feel this way. Maybe there’s a whole world of moms in their sweatpants crying on the floor of their bathrooms , secluded in homes waiting their high heels and their dreams." So then it was born, right there on the bathroom floor. I was going to do a one woman show called Sweatpants & High Heels. It was going to inspire moms all over the world.
The only problem was that I’d never even seen a one woman show before.
But then again, I’d never been a mom before...and I figured that out.
