What Is the Story of The Memory Show?
When a mother starts having trouble recalling facts, her adult daughter moves back home to take care of her—or, as her mother sees the situation, her daughter has decided to move back home because she can no longer pay her own rent. Called simply “Daughter” and “Mother,” the exasperated duo faces off in The Memory Show, breaking the fourth wall and begging the audience to see their respective sides of the story as the real story. As it becomes increasingly difficult for Mother to remember where she is, Daughter must come to terms with the fact that despite her around-the-clock care, her mother barely even remembers she has a daughter at all. But when Mother reveals a secret about their past, her precarious relationship with her only child changes for good.
