"A remarkable journey into the interior of a woman experiencing what Shakespeare called 'the very wrath of love'...brilliantly performed and written with gut-wrenching honesty by Pascale Roger-McKeever." Michael Billington- The Guardian

"McKeever is brilliant in her delivery of Mom. She is ecstatic, sad, scared, insightful, and all that makes up a woman. And truth be told (finally), moms know there is nothing else like motherhood to strip a female of her identity."

Megan Grabowski, onStage, Pittsburgh

“This is an excellent one-woman performance that will grip you and leave you thinking about it long after the show is over.”
Lisa Kadyk - Associate Director of Therapeutic Development.


“Pascale Roger-McKeever’s character, Mom, delivers an eyes wide open experience that challenges us to look at our conventions and our orthodoxy. She unboxes female sexuality and punches patriarchy right in the nose.”
Marty Behrens – Chief Executive, data and analytics.


"Utterly compelling." Cristina Garcia, American journalist, novelist and playwright, Dreaming in Cuban, The Lady Matador’s Hotel, Here in Berlin.

Battled scarred and still willing, artist and mother, Pascale refuses to compromise, she returns to her stage roots with The Ins and Outs of Fingers, Spoons and an Open Marriage – Winner of the March Madness Competition. Next stop London and Dublin.

A suburban Mom accepts her husband’s invitation to an open marriage and proceeds with a singleness of purpose no one saw coming. The Ins and Outs acknowledges and embraces the acute discomfort of living out our inescapable sexuality. A funny and shameless exploration of shame itself that for good measure upends accepted notions about healing and self-realization along the way.

Pascale’s writing is inspired by the following quote, “…the whole sky has fallen on [me] and all [I] can do about it is shout.” (Antigone, Jean Anouilh)
