My Mother Has 4 Noses

$55-$75

Jonatha's mom did have 4 noses, at least as many names, and an indomitable sense of humor. She was a published poet, a clown, a Christian Scientist, and she had Alzheimer's. In their final two years together, Jonatha and her mother would mine the daily goings-on for theatre. "Boolie (Jonatha's nickname), are you getting this down? We should make a play out of it!" My Mother Has 4 Noses is the result.



In this powerful musical one-woman show, acclaimed singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke tells a very unusual mother-daughter love story.
