In 2015 16th Street explores the most intimate of relationships – that between a parent and a child.
Our parents make us who we are and then we rebel against it. They allow us to enter the world but cannot always keep us safe. They care for us until we break out on our own and then we care for them. How can this cross-generational relationship survive so many challenges? And how do we go on once that tie is severed? Our plays in Season Eight 2015 FATHERS DAUGHTERS MOTHERS SONS ask do we fall not far from the tree, how do we repair the mistakes we have made, and is our identity decided for us, or can we shape it ourselves? -- Ann Filmer
