by Angela Moira Loftus
FAR FROM AVALON and NOT MY MOTHER
A double bill of original dramatic and comic pieces written by Lorella Loftus
Mother and daughter team, Lorella and Angela Loftus perform two original theatrical pieces written by Lorella Loftus with original musical composition by Vikki Schwarz. Angela Loftus performs Far From Avalon and Lorella Loftus performs Not My Mother. Jeff Hinkle directs. Vikki Schwarz plays keyboard with Stephen Trudell on percussion.
Far From Avalon:
A short musical Arthurian fantasy about a crisis on the Isle of Avalon. Lady Vivienne tells the story and sings, accompanied by keyboard and percussion. Avalon is beginning to wither as people stop believing in the Old Ways. With the help of her priestesses and the cauldron, Lady Vivienne must come up with strategies (which include Arthur, Merlin, and Morgan la Fey) to stop the decay and make Avalon bloom again. This show was produced at the Hyde Park FronteraFest play festival in 2019.
Not My Mother:
A short one-woman comedy about a grown-up daughter’s relationship with her mother. Told within the framework of a woman’s encounters with a “friend,” the story is about the mother’s eccentricities and the various conflicts we can all identify with. By the end, the daughter achieves a new understanding of the relationship with her mother and finds a way to mend it. This show includes original music.
