Not My Mother

Not My Mother is a one-woman comedy, written and performed by Scottish playwright and actor, Lorella Loftus, about a grown-up daughter’s relationship with her Scottish mother. Told within the framework of the woman’s encounters with a “friend,” the story is about how she deals with her mother’s eccentricities. The daughter must achieve a new understanding of the relationship with her mother and find a way to mend it. This show includes original music by Vikki Schwarz. It is produced by the Austin Celtic Festival and Interwoven Theatre Company.

"Me: Wouldn't you like a new one, mother?

Mother: Oh no dear. I like my old cracked one."

Not My Mother will run each day of the festival.  Performance is approximately 30 to 35 minutes long.
