About this show

You screwed up last Mother's Day. So you didn't know that cashmere sweater would give her an allergic reaction. You didn't expect that half-price chocolate to give her food poisoning. Who knew the coupon for five free hugs expired after kindergarten! So this year, let us do the work for you. Our aptly titled solo performance showcase, See Mom, I Didn't Forget! is fully equipped with pieces to make you and her laugh hysterically, remember the craziness, and remember the love. We celebrate the complicated relationship of you and Mom. If the two of you are on the outs, live on separate hemispheres, planets, or dimensions (literally or figuratively), bring someone else! And enjoy an afternoon or evening of familial craziness that doesn't star your family for a change. GIFT SET: For just $5 more, get the complete "See Mom, I Didn't Forget!" gift set! Each gift set includes one hand-crafted personalized Mother's Day card, one complimentary drink, and preferred seating! What the heck, why not get a gift set for yourself, too?! THE LINE-UP: Matinee 2pm -- Julia Jackson -- Zahra Noorbaskhsh -- Martha Rynberg -- Paolo Sambrano Evening 7pm -- Julia Jackson -- Thao P. Nguyen -- Martha Rynberg -- Paolo Sambrano More info about the artists: JULIA JACKSON rides the roller-coaster world of adoption in "I Didn't Sign Up For This!" This comic and solo artist has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has worked with Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, and Paul Mooney. THAO P. NGUYEN is a solo performer who was featured as a closing act at the SF 2009 Theater Festival. In "Fortunate Daughter," she wakes up on a good morning in Vietnam, dons her full-metal jacket and goes deer hunting on Hamburger Hill. Later, her mother takes her to meet her grandmother for the first time. ZAHRA NOORBAKHSH is a solo artist and stand-up comedian who has performed with Maz Jobrani from the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour. She's struggling to figure out what will save her and her mother from the fiery pits of hell in "Hijab or Hammer-pants?" MARTHA RYNBERG, a Solo Performance Workshop facilitator and original director of the critically acclaimed W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, has her own damn show! In "Best Feeding," she is an adoptive mother who is breast feeding her child. Impossible! Crazy talk! Right?! Right?! PAOLO SAMBRANO is a solo artist and was the lead producer of the short film, Elements, nominated for a Golden Gate Award at the 2005 SF International Film Festival. In "Bi-Poseur," assuming Paolo doesn't kill himself first, the blood clot in his leg will. But before all that he has to deal with uncooperative Playstation controllers, Bay Area prep schools, his mother's death, and his quest for the perfect suicide note (otherwise, why do it?). IMPORTANT NOTE: No one under 16 years old will be admitted to the show.
