About The Event

Eleemosynary

a drama by Lee Blessing

Eleemosynary probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie’s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect—and sensitivity—whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea. As the play begins, Echo is caring for Dorothea, who has just had a stroke. During the course of the play, Echo tries to bring the three women together. Eleemosynary presents fragmented vignettes of the lives of the three women as they struggle to define themselves both as individuals and as part of a family unit. This poignant and mature study of familial relationships highlights the human need for connection and forgiveness.
