"Stories from My Mother" a play for over-life sized puppets, actors and marionettes, tells the story of my family's survival during the Holocaust and the war in Europe, and how this has affected the next generation. Though the main character, Peta, begins the narrative with the cryptic statement:
"Some of this story is true, and some of it is a lie", in fact almost all of it is true- the dialogue is taken from family conversations heard during childhood. The puppets are recreations of family members- both the German ones and the Hungarian Jews, and attempt to channel their remarkable and vibrant personalities.
The set is at times the house in Queens where some of the stories were heard, at other times the snow covered section of the Budapest ghetto in 1944. Shadow play, revolving dioramas, and dramatic puppets bring what was past and what was imagined to life."
