My Mother's Clothes Are Not My Mother
Losing a parent is
difficult enough. Losing your final parent presents an additional challenge:
What are you supposed to do with all your family’s stuff?Join celebrated Maine
author Peavey as she confronts that question in this hilarious and heartbreaking
one-woman show about mourning, sorting and saying goodbye.
For months, Elizabeth
Peavey had avoided wading through her late mother’s things. But when her mom’s
condo sells, she’s forced to deal with its contents. As she does, objects surface,
triggering memories and emotions. Possessions she once thought would be easy to chuck – the Talbots
wardrobe, the milk glass and tea cup collections, the broken-down Singer sewing
machine – suddenly take on epic stature, forcing the question: How do we know
when to let go?
Running time: 2 hrs 15 mins, including one intermission.
