"Great Bellied Women" wins Radburn's Orginal Works Competiton

The Radburn Players present Great Bellied Women  in Fair Lawn, New Jersey on October 20th. In Great Bellied Women, widow Agnes Moulsworth, a respected midwife, and her high-spirited daughter Margery return from a successful delivery to interview a prospective apprentice, the pious Mistress Jane Cobbe, and the riotous laughs ensue! This thirty-minute comedic period piece illuminates the peculiar practices of Renaissance childbirth, while celebrating the bond of women rising above their oppression in this sacred exclusively female arena, the Elizabethan birthing chamber. The Radburn Players have been continually producing shows for over eighty years! To learn more about this historic company, visit To preview this script, contact or go to
