Strength of Mother/Daughter Bond Tested in My Mother’s Keeper
Electric Lodge (Venice, CA)
Delving deep into the memories of her grandmother’s mah-jongg games — and the hilarious women who gathered to gossip there — playwright Jane Press discovered the seeds of her hit new play, My Mother’s Keeper. Press presents four generations of women in a show business family, all linked together by the mother/daughter bond. Moving across time and circumstance, My Mother’s Keeper is funny, disturbing, zany and poignant — but ultimately healing. Robin McKee directs this piercing examination of maternity and inheritance for the Electric Lodge Theater.
