Mother Lode – a new play

Poster Mother Lode 300January/June/August 2016

A new One-Woman-Play by Virginia Wall Gruenert
Starring Linda Haston

While it’s true that mothers and daughters often have contentious relationships that will keep therapists in business for decades to come, there is no denying the deep bond that exists between them. Mother Lode deals with the end-of-life decisions that must be made by dutiful daughters, as well as the discord, conciliation, warfare, and ultimate acceptance (whether they like it or not) between strong, independent women bound by love and family.

“Over the course of one hour and ten minutes Mother Lode blurs the line between life and art.” ~Megan Grabowski of Pittsburgh in the Round

“a deeply emotional story of two women discovering each other and themselves along the way. Haston sings, dances and wails with intensity. It’s a powerful night of theater.”
~ Mike ‘Buzz’ Buzzelli of ‘Burgh Vivant
