I Am (Not) My Mother

Though the dozens of voices that form Suzanne Beal’s I Am (Not) My Mother come from diverse viewpoints, there is something universal to be found in the relationships between mothers and daughters. In crafting the piece, Beal conducted story circles with more than 80 women, explaining to, “the stories we see so often depict the Monster Mom or the Angel Mom. I wanted to hear from ordinary women—to explore the good and bad, the funny and sad.” As a handful of actors relay the resulting collage of stories and poetry, told by everyone from children to assisted living residents, the production explores questions of growing up, work, and love as taught and observed by mothers. Original music by Jessica Bowers heightens the emotional resonance of the work.

Society Hill Playhouse

Tucked into the historic David Garrick Hall, Society Hill Playhouse has been showcasing off-Broadway productions and comedic musicals since its inception in 1960. Its accessible roster of performances, which have included Nunsense and Lafferty’s Wake, belie Victorian-inspired decor such as pressed tin walls and refined seats that don’t talk about their feelings.
