Eleemosynary

by Lee Blessing
May 12 – June 12, 2011
Directed by Lynn Lammers 

Eleemosynary: adj., charitable, the giving of alms.

Sensitive and probing, this masterful play examines the subtle and often perilous relationship between three remarkable women: a young girl, her mother, and her grandmother – a unique family blessed, and cursed, with supreme intelligence and eccentricity. This bittersweet comedy is a snapshot of the powerful familial love that defines our past, present and future.
