An all-new play about pathos; the “unshakable monster that is guilt,” and the things we’re not supposed to talk about.
Guilt (A Love Story) is a deep dive into a complex, uncomfortable, and highly human feeling. A state of being that most of us, especially parents, wrestle with inelegantly. Focusing on Flacks’ personal odyssey Guilt brings the perspective of a self-sacrificing Jewish mother who becomes the instigator of a family’s dissolution. Societal effects, causes and casualties and the feeling that we have when we’ve profoundly hurt others. This exploration may not pull punches, but don’t worry, it’s accompanied by laughs – because how else do we get through anything?
Diane Flacks returns to Tarragon Theatre with Guilt (A Love Story), her fifth one-woman show.
