Ellen Snortland has written, and will perform, a one-woman memoir play, about the relationship (and lack thereof) between her and her mom, which she created to investigate and resolves questions about her mom's unresponsiveness and lack of warmth to a daughter who, by all accounts, was warm and outgoing. Snortland is a lawyer, a longtime columnist for the Pasadena Weekly, and a committed progressive activist—she notes that Aug. 26, the final two performances of her play, is when women finally won the right to vote. Her 80-minute, music-scored, Pulitzer-nominated play cycles through pain and laughter, a powerful combination that's received praise from Gloria Steinem and Riane Eisler, but only plays for four performances.
