Anchored by a breakout performance from Jenny Slate, OBVIOUS CHILD is a raw, energetic comedy and packed with moments of poignant human honesty. On stage, aspiring comedian Donna is unapologetically herself. But when she gets dumped, loses her job, and finds herself pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day, Donna has to navigate the murky waters of independent adulthood for the first time. In this honest comedy that depicts one woman’s reality and many women’s rights, writer/director Gillian Robespierre depicts a pregnancy tale with a refreshing matter-of-factness rarely seen onscreen.
