Six Words for My Mother

Expressions of love between a mother and child can take the form of a drawing on the refrigerator, a surprise kiss in the morning, or a bed that was made without asking. For this Mother’s Day event, storytellers perform a Six-Word Memoir, then reveal the backstory. At the show’s end, audience members share their six-word stories in the playful “circus” environment of Elizabeth Streb’s STREB Lab for Action Mechanics.

With Orange Is the New Black’s Diane Guerrero, Grammy Award-winning musician Dan Zanes, writers Saïd Sayrafiezadeh and Lynn Harris, and McNally Jackson founder Sarah McNally, and introducing Toshi Woodson.
