I Remember Mama
by John Van Druten
Directed by: Mary T. Boyer
A heartwarming and inspiring play based on the Kathryn Forbes’ novel ‘Mama’s Bank Account’. The play was performed on Broadway in 1944, followed by an award-winning film, a TV show, and a Musical. The play details the daily tragedies and triumphs of a Norwegian immigrant family in early 20 th century San Francisco. This simple and honest 1940’s classic shows how even the smallest and seemingly most insignificant experiences of family life still resonate with today’s audiences. This production will follow in the footsteps of an off-Broadway production by the Transport Group in New Jersey with the entire play (25 roles) performed by ten women. The play is a ‘memory play’, and women are ‘memory carriers’.
Dates: Sept. 14th – Sept. 24th, 2023
Venue: Maumee Indoor Theatre
“I Remember Mama” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
The Shop Around The Corner [Our Holiday Radio Play Offering]
by Samson Raphaelson and based on a play by: Miklos Laszlo
Adapted and Directed By: Mary T. Boyer
A delightful, funny, sad, romantic comedy about two employees at a gift shop who can barely stand each other. The irony is that they are, in fact, falling in love with each other. They have become pen pals and their letters in the mail to each other allow them to bare their souls anonymously to one another. The film has been the basis for many adaptions including ‘You’ve Got Mail’ with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
