Do you know the stories of how your ancestors came to this country? What about the stories left behind? Notes to the Motherland is a transformative tale of one son’s search for his immigrant family’s history that brings the audience center stage into his compelling journey. This is a must see for anyone interested in exploring one’s family roots.
New York Magazine has described Notes to the Motherland as “a compelling, gut-wrenching, and surprisingly funny one man play about the search for a family history in the aftermath of WWII Russia.”
