"My Mother's Clothes Are Not My Mother" - One-woman show by Elizabeth Peavey

My Mother’s Clothes Are Not My Mother, Elizabeth Peavey’s hilarious and heartbreaking one-woman show about mourning, sorting and saying goodbye.

For months, Elizabeth Peavey avoided wading through her late mother’s things. But when her mom’s condo sells, she’s forced to reckon with its contents. As she does, objects surface, triggering memories from her childhood. Possessions she once thought would be easy to chuck - the Polynesian hors d’oeuvre platter, the outdated evening coat, the milk glass and tea cups - suddenly take on epic stature, forcing the question: How do we know when to let go?
