The Memory Show, which has book and lyrics by Sara Cooper and music by Zach Redler, is described as such: "Showing up is half the battle...and then there's the other half.

Conflicting versions of the past collide in this honest and darkly funny portrait of a mother, a daughter, and their inescapable relationship."
