Explore the Meaning of Motherhood with these Performances

From the ArtsBoston Blog...

This Mother’s Day, we’re showcasing performances that shed light on what it means to be a mother. No matter the shape or size of one’s family, these stories of mothers and mother-figures express a broad scope of experiences that resonate with maternal relationships of all kinds.

Melinda Lopez’s nuanced one-woman-show captures the complicated relationship between a woman and her 92-year-old mother. A performance beloved by many who saw ArtsEmerson’s premiere production in 2016 or the 2018 remount at the Huntington Theatre Company, Lopez’s journey reminds audiences that there is no perfect method to care for a loved one. This play is a crash course in gracefully handling one’s shortcomings and fears to put family first. You can still stream Mala online with WGBH until this Mother’s Day, May 10.
