In My Mothers Words written and directed by regular, Alaine Beek, is based on the playwright’s own relationship with her mother and has a very human and poignant quality to it ….. The play and performers move nicely through the emotions of frustration, annoyance, surrender and, finally, connection.  The concluding moments are most heart-warming.
