Players of Utica present “Leaving Something Behind”
The Players of Utica is bringing to the stage the second in the series of works from local playwrights in Upstate New York. “Leaving Something Behind” by Tom Morgan explores the relationship between mother and daughter. Actresses Eileen Tiller-Clanton (who also directs) and Rayna Schneider perform the roles of well-meaning mother and hard-charging daughter in an evening of discovery about each other. They resurrect and investigate painful memories. They deal with shocking revelations. They expose vindictive retaliations. Although these are poignant and will tug at every mother’s and every daughter’s heartstrings, there is humor in the air throughout. The issue mother and daughter wrestle with is primal, basic. It is the issue of control, so often wielded upon women in various guises. More than that, it is a matter of confronting the lifelong repercussions of such control. Many women will find themselves nodding their heads in agreement as they experience the performance. We will have a Q&A session after each performance for audience members to discuss the play with the author and the actresses.
