Mom & Dad are a narrative-based format, reflecting the hero’s journey. Attempting catharsis, exploring relationships, and being downright fucking wacky is what they’re all about. Whether human, creature, or inanimate objects, they’re always full of heart, fear, and sex appeal.
Hannah Aslesen, Ana Bernot-Reilly
Mom & Dad will perform in the 10:30 p.m. block at the HCC Studio Theatre on Friday, August 11.

The father, Hannah; strong, capable, will play catch with you then explain how your body is changing. The mother, Ana; passionate, fierce, will talk you through a panic attack and rub your back. They embrace improv like you would a newborn child, because that’s what it is; a delicate, curious new life being born on the stage each and every night. Sure, there will be spankings, but not without good reason. Whether you’re a new parent, an old parent, or big fat baby-hating asshole, there’s something for all in their narrative format. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll definitely learn something.
