My Mother's Story at the Granville Island Stage
Mother's Day, Sunday May 10th, 2009 at 4 pm
Twenty of of Vancouver's best loved actresses collaborate to share inspirational, hilarious and unforgettable stories about Motherhood.
My Mother's Story combines the life stories of 20 extraordinary ordinary women as written and told by their daughters. Storytelling at its best, this 90 minute show documents the lives of women all over the world, all races, living through all kinds of heartache and joy.
My Mother's Story was presented in Vancouver for Mothers' Day in 2006, 2007 and 2008. This collaborative, evolving work all started with a five minute story about a mother told to Vancouver actor Marilyn Norry.
Marilyn Norry will be giving evening workshops May 14, 21, 28, and June 4 to encourage and assist those who'd like to write about their mother's lives. Space is limited, so sign up now.
The book, My Mother's Story, will be published this May.
There is now a website, My Mother's Story: The Extraordinary Lives of Ordinary Women, where both longer and shorter stories can be shared on-line, if wanted.
