Part of what makes a story enjoyable is it’s relatability . As the viewers are we able to identify with and appreciate the situations presented to us? If the answer is yes, then points can immediately be awarded to the writer of said story. This is the case with the Modjeska Playhouse’s Secrets of A Soccer Mom, starring Shana Jean Martin, Kelly McNamara, and Hailey Tweter. Listening to modern day mothers regale each other with everything from spousal complaints to adventures in soul-searching is so familiar to us that our understanding of the ladies’ predicaments is instantly acquired if not pre-implanted by society. Though much of the drama does comes from a very serious place, there is a decent balance in this play, with some genuinely funny moments.
