Last Lists of My Mad Mother
Last Lists of My Mad Mother
"Last Lists is among the best." —Variety

"Put Mad Mother on your 'must see' list." —The Salt Lake Tribune

"Crisp, clean writing, sharply realized characters and a clear story line that leads to an emotional, inevitable but unsentimental conclusion...a tough and funny response to one of life's inescapable and defining moments. " —Journal Inquirer
By Julie Jensen.

Cast: 3w. "Last Lists of My Mad Mother is a hilarious, often touching look at the toll Alzheimer's disease takes on a parent-child relationship. It magnificently reveals the humor within the tragedy, without taking away from the seriousness of the issue." (The Record-Journal) Ma cares about ribbons and bows, intransitive verbs and keeping to her rigid schedule. Dot uses a 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. Unit set.
