Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles to see the new play In Mother Words. When we arrived at The Geffen I was in love with the beautiful architecture of the playhouse. The Geffen Playhouse was built in 1929 as the Masonic Affiliates Club, or the MAC, for students and alumni at UCLA. All the floors, walls and fixtures of the playhouse are still original from when it was built in 1929.
The theatre was small and intimate. It felt like the actors were right there on the couch at home telling us their stories. The play is a collaboration of true stories that the writers complied from real Mothers. The stories covered everything from a Mother loosing her son in the military, gay parenting, the struggles of an adopted Mother and even a Mother taking her autistic child out on his first date. I laughed, I related, I cried and I cheered. I got to experience all these emotions while holding my Mom's hand.
Following the show we went into a nice reception where we had a chance to meet the writers and hear about how they collected all the stories. The story of the Mother who had taken her autistic child on his first date was just added to the show a week before going live.
I highly recommend getting tickets to see the show In Mother Words. It is perfect opportunity to do something special with your Mom or girlfriends.
We were so very fortunate to get to meet the two fabulous women who concieved the show. We were able to get a signed In Mother Words show magazine for one of our readers from Susan Rose and Joan Stein.
