Every Woman Has a Story (3 hours), every story is different, every voice unique. Yet this mosaic of memories, these unflinchingly honest, unabashed admissions of love, loss, longing, fear, and pride in overcoming adversities of all kinds and dimensions, has a unity. Collectively, these vignettes, some fleeting memories, some pondered portraits, some the softer shadings in between, become a celebration of the community of women young, old, married, single, mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, friends. The stories, collected and edited by Daryl Ott Underhill and performed by The Square Circle Ensemble Group, will strike a responsive chord, rekindle an emotion, or reawaken lost thoughts and make a marvelous Mother's Day gift.
