Largely political, a bit clinical, inherently sexual and utterly unforgettable, "WhatMama Said About 'Down There'" is the latest performance piece from writer/performer/activist Sia Amma. Directed by Gloria Weinstock, the lighthearted comedy takes a trip "down there" to get the lowdown on what mothers say (or don't say) about those "nether regions" and the effect their
communication style has on their daughters.

Armed with insight, biting wit and gentle humor, the play features a lively multicultural female cast and a "True Confessions" presentation format that takes a page from beauty parlor fodder of the 50s. As the play unfolds, Amma takes fifties-style sexual repression out for a spin and hangs it up to dry.

"What Mama Said About 'Down There'" utilizes the art of playful storytelling to spotlight sexual politics, social codes and hidden issues at the root of what's "down there". By initiating dialogues and diffusing tension with humor, the play hopes to serve as a bridge to frank discussions of sexuality and more honest communication between mothers and daughters.
