Last Lists of My Mad Mother is a humorous yet poignant look at the toll that time and Alzheimer's disease takes on a mother-daughter relationships.  It magnificently reveals the humor within the tragedy, without taking away from the seriousness of the issue.  Ma cares about ribbons and bows, intransitive verbs and keeping to her rigid schedule. Her daughter Dot uses her wicked sense of humor to sort out the tangle of her mother's mind. Together they struggle with Ma's inevitable decline, while Sis phones in her advice from afar. In and out of the sinewy webs of Ma's fleeting awareness, retracing paths they have traveled countless times, Ma and Dot drive toward understanding and arrive with some sense of surprise at the destination of comfort. Commissioned by the Mark Taper Forum, this play was a winner of the Mill Mountain Theatre New Play Competition. Directed by Frank Bartella. Last Lists of My Mad Mother is presented by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING. 

The buffet menu from Current Catering includes a choice of Rosemary Garlic Roasted Pork Loin or Lemon and Herb Roasted Chicken, Wild Rice Pilaf, Tossed Green Salad, Sautéed Vegetable Blend along with rolls and butter and a fudge brownie for dessert.  A full cash bar will be available for cocktails before dinner.

“… a tough and funny response to one of life’s inescapable and defining moments”     Journal Inquirer
