What is it like to be the son of a feminist hero? What is it like to be his mother? "Perdita" is the compelling story of two generations, two genders, two experiences of the same pioneering life. Perdita and her son travel to the four corners of the world and to the very edge of life to find out what it costs to be an inspiration. "Perdita" exposes the good works as well as the lovers, heartbreaks and the difficult balance of family life and career. The play is about the private side of a proud woman's public life and about what it cost her child to be with her while she lived it.

When I asked her why, despite a career spanning more than five and a half decades, and nearly every major acting award the world over, she continues to return to the plays of William Shakespeare, in a tone exceedingly gentle, yet slightly dismayed that the question need even be asked, she said, 'Cause that's my passion, Matt.'
