Women on Fire (Play)
Judith Ivey , Mary B. Robinson, Director
Cherry lane Theatre (Nov 2003)
Ms. Ivey plays 12 characters, including Eileen, a middle-aged Boston-Irish woman with strong feelings about her dying mother. ''Where's the commandment on honoring your children?'' she asks the priest in the confessional. Eileen says her mother squashed her confidence, broke her spirit and ''made me unfit for any man, so I'd have to tend her in her old age.'' There's Lydia, another dying, manipulative mother who's busy trying to rationalize her behavior.
''I only know in every biography of every great writer I ever read, you never hear of any loving upbringing,'' she says. So really, she decides, her author daughter owes her success to Lydia's bad mothering.Then there's Fern, a Midwestern housewife who enjoys baking because the ingredients don't get involved in conflicts with one another or talk back to her. Fern has a daughter who lives in New York and works in publishing, and they don't see each other much. Fern recently crocheted her daughter a bathroom-tissue cover, and it was not graciously received. ''She spends half the phone call jumping on me about taste,'' Fern recalls. ''I wanna say: 'You're a fine one to talk about taste. You don't even eat.' '' Ny Times 11/20/2003
