Primetime Show History

Mike Mother

April 28 - June 4 2016

CLOSING WEEKEND. Exploring the tension between fiction and non-fiction, Jessica Anne’s Mike Mother weaves theater, writing, and film into the lies that cripple memories, the truth that haunts our tales, and all the gaps in between. Mike Mother is a poetic dumpster dive into Jessica Anne's childhood, a lyrical picture of motherhood thrown to the wolves. Equal parts psychological thriller, live-action-film, and genre-bending performance, Mike Mother laser-focuses Jessica Anne's signature style into a torrent of language that slices away at her past in an attempt to create something new.
