A heartwarming, bittersweet comedy about three generations of Jewish-American women. Mary Goodman, a woman of the “greatest generation” is mourning the loss of her husband. Her daughter, Deborah, is encouraging her to move on with a new independence. In a series of scenes between Mary, Deborah, and Mary’s mother, Bessie (whose old-fashioned Jewish values emphasized marriage and homemaking when Mary wanted to pursue her education and her art while waiting to start a family), Mary reflects back on her life as a daughter, wife and mother. A trio of actresses play the three women over the course of sixty-five years. As Mary’s life progresses from childhood to matrimony to motherhood, we see how each successive generation of women lives up to the expectations of the past and makes brave choices about the future. At the play’s end, the three women stand as links in a chain made of faith, love, and understanding.
