There are times when we are called upon to define ourselves. Kathleen Tolan's Memory House takes an intimate look at one of those moments, shared between a mother and a daughter. It's New Year's Eve, and Maggie, divorced and jobless, is facing the prospect of having to live alone again as her adopted daughter Katia prepares to leave Maggie's home. Katia is struggling to write a personal essay required for her college application. As the clock ticks down to the postmark deadline, anxiety and emotions lurking beneath the surface begin to erupt. The play confronts the anguish and guilt we feel when we know our actions will hurt someone we love. It was first developed at Seattle Repertory Theatre as part of the Women Playwrights Festival. Allison Narver directs.
