February 4-16, 2014
Eastern Front Theatre is excited to join with Neptune Theatre in 2014 for the world Premiere production of Joanne Miller’s Cradle and All, a mother’s comedic journey to solve the mystery of the Mona Lisa.

With two small children, an accountant husband with OCD, an overbearing mother, and a performance artist brother who refuses to grow up, Carole, a former artist, wonders if she has made the right choices. She wants to paint again, but life keeps intervening. About to give up, she is visited by Leonardo da Vinci. He will help her paint again if she can solve the mystery of the Mona Lisa. This fast paced new comedy about finding our true identity, answers once and for all the ancient riddle, “Who was the real Mona Lisa?”
