I bet you think you know what you’re doing on Mother’s Day. You are screaming at your kids for not moving fast enough and stepping on a sweetly strung macaroni necklace that is now abandoned next to the hallway closet (you’re not sure how it got there). You are discovering a fresh stain on your blouse, a rip in your stockings, and a new crack in your Kindle Fire, all while dodging phone calls from your own frantic mother who is deeply offended your mother-in-law will also be spending the day with you. You are praying your husband/boyfriend/wife/mother-in-law actually remembered to make a brunch reservation this year, so you won’t be stuck at some corporate pancake house that serves food bound to make you sick and no adult beverages.
What if THIS mother’s day was different? You can still enjoy your family. Your brunch. Your mother. But what if, after a day of regular celebrating, you turn your evening into a new kind of celebration of Mother’s Day? Instead of ending the day at home, why don’t you bring your husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/mother/friends out to The Queen:
While, World Cafe Live at The Queen is famous for housing public radio station WXPN and showcasing musical acts like Sister Hazel, Citizen Cope, and Freelance Wales, it is now bringing a new kind of fame to its stage: Listen To Your Mother: Wilmington.
You can eat, drink, and be taken in by the power of the voices on the stage. You’ve never had a Mother’s Day quite like this.

We want your story on Motherhood
Five minutes in length
You don’t have to be a mother or even a woman. We all have stories to share about motherhood.
Auditions will be by-appointment only; however, they will be live. You will not submit your piece before the audition.
Most of all, take a deep breath, and let us hand you the microphone. We know you want to stand on that stage…
