Menopause Mama


Rose Weaver's Menopause Mama is a compelling, cutting edge and often hilarious solo performance play about menopause and aging. Through a variety of characters and interspersed with signature renditions of new and standard songs, Rose Weaver depicts the struggles, triumphs, tears, and the lighter side of menopause. Weaver also gives a voice to young women and a few men as they grapple with their own midlife changes.

No-one has taken on menopause like this! Weaver's performance sparkles with energy, insight and a courageous take-no-prisoners honesty.

A Growing Population

As our population ages, the number of postmenopausal women grows. It is estimated that in 1998, there were over 477 million postmenopausal women in the world. That number is projected to rise to 1.1 billion by the year 2025.

The beloved star of stage, screen, TV and cabaret has moved audiences to tears and to laughter for close to 40 years. Now she gives a voice to the 41 million women in America who are in various stages of the change of life. Menopause Mama is created using Weaver's own journey into menopause as well as the humorous, poignant, outrageous, heart-warming and very human stories of other women who have successfully -- or not too successfully -- traveled the waters we call "the change."
