In this award-winning comic play, Jennie Fahn revisits her very colorful character of a mother during what turned out to be the final act of her mother’s life. Jennie’s mother was a force to be reckoned with — a former dancer never content to merely rehash her past, there was always a story to be embellished, always a name to drop, and always a lesson to teach. Jennie learns that not only were her post-mortem instructions hid in a specific place... Her mother was also hiding a long-held secret.
The show premiered at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival where it won Best Solo Performance, the Producer's Encore Award, and was named 'Pick of the Fringe.' It was part of the 2018 Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival, and ran to rapturous audiences in Los Angeles for the past year.
It is a perfect touring show. Audiences around the country will love its humor and universal message. This is not simply my mom's story -- it is a very human story -- which is why audience members have returned more than once to see the show again and again.
