Mother of Mothers

Marilyn Norry

For over 30 years I've worked as an actor, writer, producer, director and editor of plays and screenplays. I've taught acting, writing, and worked with student nurses and doctors on psychiatric scenarios. And since 2004 I've worked with over 200 people helping them find and craft the story of their mother's life - not eulogies or testimonials but the truth of what their mothers lived and experienced. I know stories - I love hearing them, writing them, telling them, living them.Writing mother stories allows us to connect with our family history, find our own voice, and break through the silence around women's lives. You will discover the legacy your mother gave you through her life and the ability to pass this on to others. Whether you knew her or not, liked her or not, her life is a story.
