What

NPR personality and best-selling memoirist Sandra Tsing Loh takes the driver’s seat and slams the engine into overdrive in her hilarious, enlightening, and totally candid road trip through the triple M’s—middle-age, menopause, and motherhood. Joined onstage by noted actors Caroline Aaron and Shannon Holt, who portray everyone from her BFFs to her ex-husband, lover, therapist, daughters, and more, Loh recounts her tumultuous journey that starts with a spontaneous trip to Burning Man. The LA Times declares The Madwoman in the Volvo “is bracing in its witty sociological commentary and its refusal to accept clichéd notions of biology as destiny.”
