8 Ways My Mother Was Conceived
Written by Michaela Di Cesare
Directed by: Tamara Brown
Starring Michaela Di Cesare

Re-conceived and re-produced, the one-woman show 8 Ways my Mother Was Conceived is about a girl growing up in Montreal’s East End Italian community who develops a Virgin Complex brought on by the fact that her entire family believes her mother was born immaculately à la Jesus Christ.

Despite having already won a 2011 MECCA for best text, Di Cesare has completely restructured and re-examined the play with the generous help and expert insight of Emma Tibaldo at Playwright's Workshop Montreal. The script is now edgier, bolder and unapologetic.

Michaela Di Cesare recently completed her Master’s Degree at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies.  During her MA she appeared in Ovid: Love Letters from the Empty Bed, Much Ado about Don Juan, and New Custom. In Montreal she has most recently played Saura in the Montreal Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of Titus Andronicus and Jaya Patel in The Arrangement. Other notable roles are Mariedl in Werner Schwab’s Holy Mothers at Theatre Ste-Catherine and the Young Woman in Mike Bartlett’s My Child at Mainline Theatre.
