Take a ride down the slippery slope of the other side of the hill
in this jam-packed hour of shoot-from-the-hip-replacement truth-telling.
From her childhood-to-adult selves, to her beat poet & sex therapist alter-egos;
Zeglinski takes you on a journey through squelched dreams and great expectations.
Mittelschmerz is a wild ride through life’s great juggling act –
Post-partum, Preemies, & Peri-menopause; Autism, Anger, & Acceptance!
With storytelling, monologue, and spoken word;
Zeglinski weaves a witty exploration of motherhood and middle age.
This dramedy will leave audiences in stitches and in tears.
Nominated for The 2014 Manitoba Association of Playwrights’
Harry Rintoul Award for BEST NEW MANITOBA PLAY!
“…this clever writer-producer-performer, who brought
Stretchmarks and Breast Friends to the (Winnipeg) Fringe in previous years,
finds both lots to say and truly original ways to say it
in this one-hour, one-woman, high-energy show.”

Stretchmarks 2012 “…clever and creative…wickedly funny…”
★★★★ CBC Manitoba & Winnipeg Fringe Festival Best of Fest!
