No Spring Chicken “tale of life at its very existential core”

“Hoben’s play speaks directly to me because it goes much deeper than recounting a pregnancy. Being a one-woman show, No Spring Chicken could have passed as a comedy routine.

Her character, Jenn, is a representation of Hoben and the other mothers.
