Production Description
Leenya, an actor and musician, is figuratively and literally stuck. One night, she finds herself performing alone in a Long Island pub, separated by a snowstorm from the rest of her Irish rock band. Dusting off her original songs, she revisits stories of love, humor, and heartache which all seem to invoke thoughts of her mother, Lynn. Lynn is also an artist, but she prefers paints and canvas over a live audience. A reluctant stage mom, she is a church lady full of mixed messages. As Leenya performs, she reaches across a continent and a generation – connecting with her mother through art and memories. Together, the two women push beyond their pasts and discover how to live with Wild Abandon. Both funny and poignant, this solo play with music examines the one primal relationship that is at once universal and infinitely, uniquely complex.
