09/13/14 – “My Mother’s Clothes” is performed in a series of connected monologs by Peavey as she confronts the following: Losing a parent is difficult enough. Losing your final parent presents an additional challenge: What are you supposed to do with all your family's stuff? For months, she avoided wading through her late mother's things. But when her mom's condo sells, she's forced to reckon with its contents. As she does, objects surface, triggering memories from her childhood. Possessions she once thought would be easy to chuck - the Polynesian hors d'oeuvre platter, the outdated evening coat, the milk glass and tea cups - suddenly take on epic stature, forcing the question: How do we know when to let go?
Following the Sunday matinee, Peavey will conduct a curtain talk in which audience members can learn about how the show came to be, how it has struck a universal chord and how she was finally able to part company with her mother’s Polynesian Tiki hors d'oeuvre platter. Attendees will be encouraged to share their own stories, as well.
