Choices, both kind and unkind, shape the lives of 3 generations of women in Blessing’s deceptively simple play.  The matriarch, Dorothea, is raising her granddaughter, Echo, when a stroke causes Echo to contact her mother. Artie abandoned them long ago, and resists the influence of her eccentric mother. As Echo prepares for the National Spelling Bee, mothers and daughters all learn what is to be charitable -- to themselves and to one another. Directed by Hannah Graves.
