Additional Info

This is a tale of three women and the tie that binds them: the irritating tie that rubs; the fragile tie that’s knotted, broken, and knotted again; the lasting tie that triumphs over age and death – the tie between mothers and daughters. Old Jess, her exasperated daughter, and the laughing young mother she remembers struggle for independence in a radiant play about continuity of caring. Published with A Little Something for the Ducks.
