About this show

Leenya, an actor and musician, is figuratively and literally stuck. One night, she finds herself performing alone in a Long Island pub, separated by a snowstorm from the rest of her Irish rock band. Dusting off her original songs, she revisits stories of love, humor, and heartache, which all seem to invoke thoughts of her mother, Lynn. Lynn is also an artist, but she prefers paints and canvas to a live audience. A reluctant stage mom, she is a church lady full of mixed messages. While performing, Leenya reaches across a continent and a generation — connecting with her mother through art and memories. Together, the two women push beyond their pasts and discover how to live with Wild Abandon. Both funny and poignant, this solo play with music examines a primal relationship that is at once universal and infinitely, uniquely complex.
