What do you do with a bad mom? In Dorothy Fortenberry's new comedy set in the not-too-distant future, the government has found the perfect solution: maternal reeducation facilities or Mommunes. Chalk Repertory Theatre invites Los Angeles audiences to experience the future of mothering in its World Premiere production of Mommune by Dorothy Fortenberry at Pint Size Kids in Sherman Oaks.
