Following sold-out performances at The PIT and Dixon Place,

THE MOTHER LINE STORY PROJECT

is coming to the Abingdon Theatre Company's Dorothy Strelsin Theatre (312 West 36th Street) for a one-night-only engagement on Friday, December 2 at 7pm.

THE MOTHER LINE STORY PROJECT is a storytelling platform specifically designed to bring together generations of women to tell the stories of their maternal ancestors through the creation of new, self-devised work—think The Moth Radio Hour meets ancestry.com.

 

During a series of workshops, an ever-expanding cast of storytellers works with guest directors and designers to curate one-of-a-kind performances, in which the triumphs and traumas of the women who came before can be spoken, heard, and celebrated. Universal appeal meets personal power in this show by women, about women, for everyone.  

 

Abingdon Theatre Company is dedicated to developing and producing new American work by emerging and established artists. Under the artistic direction of Tony Speciale, the company provides a safe home where playwrights, directors and actors can collaborate within a supportive and nurturing environment. 

 

THE MOTHER LINE STORY PROJECT runs Friday, December 2 at 7:00 PM at Abingdon Theatre Company's Dorothy Strelsin Theatre (312 West 36th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues). Tickets are $17-$20 and available at abingdontheatre.org or by calling 212-352-3101.
