Labyrinth Theater Company presents a new comedy about a modern-day, falling-apart California town, where Mom shares death-defying tales of pioneer crossings as she waits for her bankruptcy to come through. More…
Mom has entered a new chapter in her life: Chapter 11.. She’s filing for bankruptcy, her health could be better, and she should probably stop driving. Mom can't stop her spending money…or borrowing money…or loaning money...or generally digging herself deeper and deeper into bankruptcy. When her daughters decide to stage a financial intervention, things look like they’re getting better. Until they don’t.
See it if You like stories about mothers & daughters and themes about surviving financially. The performances are good and the story is entertaining
Don't see it if You don't like small/intimate shows or shows w/ mostly women. I was fully engaged but didn't care for the monologues that broke the 4th wall
See it if you're a fan of Diedre O'Connell who delivers, you suffered from the great recession and want company, want to support women writers
Don't see it if one-joke plays or predictable formats don't appeal to you, you expect character growth, you were expecting a comedy, you hate obstinacy
See it if you can laugh through your tears. This is an American Mother Courage. Deirdre O'Connell sings and tells stories while her world falls apart.
Don't see it if you cannot sit for almost 2 hours without an intermission.
See it if because you should see everything at this theater. They always do great shows, this one was good.
Don't see it if or go to this theater if you want to see edgy stuff. The acting was good, some fat could have been trimmed off the script.
See it if like great acting. Diedre OConnell is breathtaking. She is spot on. Set is terrific. Directing is excellent. Parts are a bit overwritten
Don't see it if you are looking for family fun
See it if A refreshing and quirky story of a mom facing bankruptcy and her avoidance of reality; wonderful, endearing performance by Deirdre O'Connell
Don't see it if It goes on a bit too long and fizzles out without a satisfying ending, but mostly I was entertained. O'Connell knows how to spin a yarn.
See it if Like outstanding performance by Deirdre O'connell or as we know her as Didi. As well as the other females cast members.
Don't see it if if you do not like off broadway theater.
See it if You enjoy off beat, naturalistic humor. Deirdre O'Connell's performance is simply amazing.
Don't see it if You bore easily. It lags a bit, at times, and seemed a couple of scenes too long for a "one act". It dies in the end with no resolve.
See it if Its a family dynamics and delusion story. There are elements that can feel a little "Lifetime" movie-ish, but I was completely invested
Don't see it if You are not into really intimate productions. I sat in the front row and felt like I was truly sitting in the family 70's decor living room.
See it if you would enjoy an intimate [tiny theater] exploration of family and loss, performed by some extraordinary actors, O'Connell is masterful.
Don't see it if you lack the patience for a drama, though a funny one, about a stressed family living amid their own delusions.
See it if u want to ponder the myth of the American West in our era & relatedly the power of faith/ambition/self-delusion in forging on in tough times
Don't see it if you couldn't empathize w/ characters who use avoidance & fantasy as coping strategies as the global economy, and their household's, crumbles
