My Mother’s G.E.M.S.

By Alexandra Glorioso

Fri. Aug. 12 to Sat., Aug. 13: A solo show at the Irondale Theatre.

Pamela Jackson and Irondale Ensemble Project present MY MOTHER’S G.E.M.S. This coming of age tale shows the tremendous strength it takes to overcome one’s past. A girl becomes a woman in a world filled with misconceptions of love, domestic violence, and a constant fear of God.

Emma is on a mission to experience the greatest feeling ever: touching God. She explores notions of how we choose our lovers and how love can fall apart through conversations with her mother about her painful marriage to Emma’s father. As she challenges her ideas of God, she is drawn to Dread, the neighborhood drug dealer and prophet. MY MOTHER’S G.E.M.S. deals with the struggle over finding a perfect mate, healing old wounds, and walking away from tradition for something new.

7 p.m., Tickets $15 online, $20 at door
