Join us for the following pieces….
STRONG LIKE HONEY by Alma Collins
A daughter recounts her generational relationship with her mother and grandmother and how being an ultimate caretaker for her mother both challenged and healed their role reversal relationship.
SELF-ISH! by Roxana Ortega
An ambitious Latina actress accepts the role of a lifetime when she decides to care for her mother with Alzheimer’s and in doing so she must face her ultimate fear: Will loving her mother mean losing her own dreams?! Her journey takes her through the world of elder care, the opera and even Africa and ultimately teaches her that it is possible to balance caring for her mother and caring for herself.
Self-ish! is a funny, heart-wrenching, beautiful ride about letting go of guilt, fears and cultural expectations and finding a balance between sacrifice and self-love.
REAL AS IT CAN BE by Yvette Cason
Musician, actress and now empty nester, Yvette takes us on a personal and funny journey from childhood to adulthood. She discovers that life doesn’t always turn out like we planned.
