"Mama Bushwick is Dead"

The Bela Kiralyfalvi Playwriting Competition winner for 2023 is "Mama Bushwick is Dead." Written by Elizabeth Shannon, the show is about five estranged siblings, Bard, Joyce, Robin, Scott, and Jo, return to their recently deceased mother’s home. They must prepare for her funeral, clean her duplex, and decide who will give her eulogy. Filled with grief, trauma, childhood memories, and dolls, “Mama Bushwick is Dead,” explores the complex family dynamics present regardless of place and time. This show is rated PG-13 for language and adult themes that may not be suited for children under 13.

 October 5-7 @ 7:30 pm in Welsbacher Theatre
