"M" A Collection of Mothers, is a series of endearing, heart-breaking, delightful and soul stirring monologues that cover a wide range of mothers. Each character tells a different tale of their lives sometimes without sentimentality and a need for acceptance from viewers. Audiences will enjoy spoken word, dance, live acapella song and hear tales as horrifying as the mother whole takes the life of her child only to be haunted by the dead child. Be inspired by the spirit of a mother long passed who pays a visit to her daughter in varying stages of maturity.
Be prepared to be enlivened, provoked and inspired. The art exhibition is a pivotal portion of the productions, featuring two and three dimensional character interpretations of each mother by eight of Milwaukee's exceptional artists.
Cast: Dasha Kelly, Biba, Yvette Mitchell, Chastity Washington, Christopher Miller, Eric Jefferson, Rhonda Nordstrom, Virgillette Adams
Artists: Brad Anthony Bernard, Loretta Jordan, Kari Garon, Andrea J. Avery, Tia Richardson, Katie Jesse, Eddie Davis, Akua Oladunjoye
