Mad Mother

Oct 26th - Nov 3rd

Fridays & Saturdays @ 7:30pm

Dot uses a wicked sense of humor to sort out the tangle of her mother’s mind. Together they struggle with Ma’s inevitable decline, while Sis phones in advice from afar. Based on the playwright’s personal experience, enjoy a surprisingly humorous and touching look at the toll Alzheimer’s disease takes on a mother-daughter relationship.
