Bēma Productions is thrilled to present the third offering of their third season, the drama From Door to Door by James Sherman, starring Pam Miller, Christine Upright and Katya Delancey. Zelda Dean directs.
From Door to Door is a heartwarming, bittersweet comedy about three generations of women:
Mary Goodman, is mourning the loss of her husband. Her daughter, Deborah, is encouraging her to end her period of mourning and move on with a new independence. In a series of scenes between Mary, Deborah, and Mary’s mother, Bessie, Mary reflects back on her life as a daughter, wife and mother. As Mary’s life progresses from childhood to matrimony to motherhood, we see how each successive generation of women lives up to the expectations of the past and makes brave new choices about the future. At the end of the play, the three women stand as links in a chain made of faith, love, and understanding
