Take a trip through the Appalachian mountains, stop on Fannie’s front porch and meet her children, grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren. In the tradition of mountain storytelling, From My Grandmother’s Grandmother Unto Me tells the joys and sorrows of five women in the author’s family with honesty and humor. The play is a testament to the power of family and the oral tradition, and how it can shape the lives of generations.
“Ross is a master storyteller, and part of a vigorous revitalization of that art form.”
–LA. Weekly (Critic’s Choice Award)
“…a simple story, beautifully told.” –Atlanta Journal Constitution
