MILF Life Crisis

According to one fan “this is the funniest night out you will spend with your clothes on.”

From Suddenly Mommy … now comes MILF Life Crisis. With an abundance of talent – and a ton of emotional bravery – Anne Marie Scheffler digs candidly into her own personal history to explore themes of marriage, divorce, and the challenges of a newly-single woman re-entering a dating pool that’s far weirder than she remembers it. And in the process she takes back the word MILF and repurposes it to mean “Mothers are incredibly lovely and fantastic!”

Splitting her time between Toronto and Los Angeles, Anne Marie Scheffler is a one-woman comedy industry who has created and toured eight solo shows across Canada and the United States. Oh, and she’s an award-winning screenwriter, has a comedy CD selling on iTunes, and also has a movie coming out.

For now, though, “that funny blonde girl” is leaving audiences in stitches with her latest show, MILF Life Crisis.  In the course of one unforgettable evening Anne Marie spins through a number of characters: aside from playing herself (pre, during, and post-marriage), she also does her husband turned ex, and several close female friends – including audience favourite Kendra, a.k.a. Nympho Kendra, who has gleefully traded in a useless husband for a number of casual lovers.

MILF‘s gritty details of divorce, self-doubt, co-parenting craziness, and what happens when a sexy and sex-starved single mom tries to navigate dating sites such as Tinder pay off with hilarious misfires, moments of humiliation, and some very believable angst. Anne Marie has mined her own life to great effect and the result is an insightful, sharply written and vividly performed show that’s been getting raves from audiences and critics alike.

“I was most impressed with Anne Marie’s craft as an actress. Throughout the play, Anne Marie, through mere inflections of tone and subtle mannerisms- naturally transforms from innocent loving wife and mother, to sad and sex-starved single mom, to hot, drunk, Tinder MILF, ( hot mothers we love to Facebook) and then to wiser liberated lover and ex wife.”

We saw MILF LIFE CRISIS last night & our cheeks still hurt from laughing. Anne Marie is a comic genius and incredible woman taking on the challenge of midlife dating (after divorce). YOU SHOULD SEE THIS IF: You are midlife, separated, divorced, dating, or in a relationship, a young guy with a thing for Hot Mamas … or for anyone needing a good laugh!”
