About the Play
Is a woman’s inability to orgasm a joke or a death sentence?
Can a Mother’s death poison your sexual roots?
Where would YOU go for sexual healing?
In this fantastically feminine, seductively southern solo tour-de-force, Tosha Fowler takes the audience deep into the swamps of her true-life experience. It’s hot and bothered with a touch of the supernatural like HBO’s True Blood, yet it has all the humor and heart-warming matriarchal strength of Steel Magnolias. Mami is the first outside production to which Lifeline Theatre has ever opened its doors. This summer Fowler reveals how life can be in the garden of good and evil, in the dirty South, in Savannah!
In Fowler’s autobiographical one-woman show, Caroline goes home to the sultry and fetid backwaters of Southern Georgia. She seeks a way to surmount a stymied sexuality. In a final desperate dive, she invokes the powers of African Goddess Mami Wata as she relives sexual exploration and exploitation entwined with her Mother’s death.
