The story of a cross cultural, WWII marriage gone awry and the baby boomer children spawned by its dysfunction. Stella Rising takes us from Tokyo to Oklahoma and from Christian Fundamentalism to the Zen of serenity. This heartbreaking yet uplifting story is told through the portrayal of a family of characters played by one woman (Ms. Davoy, whose musical talents run the gamut from jazz to opera). Davoy's mother, Stella, reclaims her family just as Alzheimer's is claiming her mind. This remarkable woman's past- and slowly blurring present- is vividly brought to life in this intimate theatrical piece.
