In The Trenches writers Graham and Kristina Fuller, “We hope this will lead to a broader market of parents being able to see our show and get a much-needed night off! Parenting can be isolating and it can often feel like you are the only ones going through what you are going through. Our hope is that our show can be a shared experience where parents can come together, let off some steam, and commiserate over the crazy, ridiculous, messy, hard, and wonderful thing that is being a parent."
In The Trenches is produced by Ember Productions and executive produced by Jen Sandler. Visceral Entertainment serves as general manager.
