My Mother’s Keeper, written by Jane Press and directed by Robin McKee, will perform at the Electric Lodge Fridays – Sundays, May 10 through Sunday, June 16, 2013 with a benefit performance on Thursday May 9. Part of the proceeds from the May 9 performance will benefit 50/50 Leadership with the money being earmarked for a documentary on the book “Beauty Bites Beast.” My Mother’s Keeper moves fluidly back and forth between 1914 and the present, taking place within the memories of four generations of women in a show business family. Looking through the lens of the mother-daughter dynamic, My Mother’s Keeper is an examination of our matriarchal inheritance, with all its inherent – and inherited – blessings and curses. It is a moving, sometimes very funny, sometimes disturbing, ultimately healing work.
