See Mom, I Didn't Forget!
"Mother. There is no other. So treat her right." - Mr. T
SEE MOM, I DIDN'T FORGET!
A quartet of solo performances just for Mother's Day
Sunday, May 9
2pm & 7pm
You screwed up last Mother's Day. So you didn't know that cashmere sweater would give her an allergic reaction. You didn't expect that half-price chocolate to give her food poisoning. Who knew the coupon for five free hugs expired after kindergarten! So this year, let us do the work for you. Our aptly titled solo performance showcase, "See Mom, I Didn't Forget!" is fully equipped with pieces to make you and her laugh hysterically, remember the craziness, and remember the love.
We celebrate the complicated relationship of you and Mom. If the two of you are on the outs, live on separate hemispheres, planets, or dimensions (literally or figuratively), bring someone else! And enjoy an afternoon or evening of familial craziness that doesn't star your family for a change.
