LAST LISTS OF MY MAD MOTHER by Julie Jensen plays February 10-24, 2024.

Last Lists of My Mad Mother is a touching play and truly funny look at the toll that caretaking and Alzheimer’s disease can take on a parent-child relationship. The show 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.
