It's one of life's most puzzling ironies: Those closest to you can also be the most mysterious. In the years after her mother's death, Ellen Snortland revisited their relationship -- one that was, depending on the moment, either funny, tender or tortuous. Now That She's Gone
, a remarkable one-woman show, is the product of Snortland's reflection. A hit of the New York and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Now That She's Gone
is as much a baby-boomer memoir as a tribute to Snortland's Norwegian-American mother. Praise of lutefisk is interwoven with memories of a naked acid trip and adoration of Eleanor Roosevelt. Praised by the likes of Gloria Steinem and Nora Dunn, Now That She's Gone
is passionate, poignant and funny, a mix of Lily Tomlin and Garrison Keillor.
