July 24 at 1:00pm & 6:00pm
A larger-than-life Hungarian 'Mama Rose,' is slowing slipping into dementia as her Broadway baby slips into middle age. MOTHER (and me) is a brilliantly funny and touching story of two women who are losing everything they've ever been-in very different ways-as they lose each other. Who's it harder for? The one who can't remember? ...Or the one who can't forget? A one-woman tour-de-force written and performed by Melinda Buckley to benefit free services from the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod.
