MY THREE MOMS

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Festival, Solo Performance
Written and Performed by Virginia Bryan, Directed by Leslie Collins

MY THREE MOMS:  One birthed her, one nursed her, one raised her.  Now she’s burying all three.  A daughter is called back to the red clay of Georgia to bury her three moms and shape her own identity.  Good Lord Almighty!  Who are all these crazy people at the funerals?!

The accomplished actress, Virginia Bryan, has written her first play – a one-woman show based on her life experience growing up with three consecutive mothers in the Bible Belt South.  The show played at the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival, the 2011 United Solo Theatre Festival at NYC’s historic Theatre Row, the 2012 Orlando International Fringe Festival, the 2012 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, and the 2012 Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festival.  In the play, Bryan plays herself and a slew of quirky characters, including family members and local towns people.  The main character is the matriarch of the highly-revered Georgia family, Aunt Zooie, who sugar-coats everything, including death by touting “we’ve got a life to celebrate” as she enters each funeral.  Dark family secrets are revealed throughout which build to the final climax where the daughter realizes that what she thought were truths were actually myths.  The show is funny, thoughtful, and heart-wrenching.  www.mythreemomstheshow.com

Virginia Bryan (Writer and Performer) began her acting career as a young acting apprentice at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and has since become an actress who has that rare mix of accessibility and beauty; a deft comedienne, she has been flooded with praise for her work in the films SLUTTY SUMMER and A FOUR LETTER WORD, for which she won Best Supporting Actress at the 2008 San Diego Filmout Festival.  The New York Times called Virginia “excellent,” for her role as Marilyn in A FOUR LETTER WORD, and Variety referred to her as “the very affecting Virginia Bryan.”  In 2008, Virginia was in the FringeNYC’s production of RAISED BY LESBIANS, where TimeOut’s review singled her out as “the very funny Virginia Bryan.”  Her acclaimed solo show MY THREE MOMS played in the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival, 2011 United Solo Theatre Festival in Theatre Row, the 2012 Canadian Fringe Festival circuit and it will play in the FRIGID NY Festival in February, 2013.  Many critics compare Virginia to a young Annette Bening, with whom she shares a sense of old world gentility that makes her perfect for either the upstairs or downstairs of a British period piece.  Whether a fierce television producer (called “shark-like” in GAMESHOW by critic Peter Filichia) or a tortured romantic (as in SLUTTY SUMMER), her larger than life personality shows through, and audiences melt.  www.virginiahbryan.com; www.mythreemomstheshow.com
