Old-Fashioned Wisdom for a New Generation

What we learn from Mama is truly timeless. We all know the Mamaisms, “Because I said so!” “I don’t care what your friends are doing!” or “I taught you better!” And, we have our own relationship to each one. Sonia Jackson gracefully balances comedy and drama to uniquely present the criticism or praise, hostility or peace of growing up.

Sonia’s remarkable work takes us on a roller coaster of universal themes about grandmas, mamas, children and mothering. Her grandma guides a multi-generational cast of characters: little boys and girls playing, teens discovering, mamas tending and more to tell the stories that make us think about how to parent well and how to be thoughtful, mindful and kind in life.
