Asylum Song

by Jeanne Marie Beaumont

directed by Elizabeth Ostler

When her adult granddaughter begins to dig into historic records, she must defy the family code of silence to liberate her grandmother from obscurity and stigma. As the trail leads into the frightening halls of a state mental hospital in 1927, this multi-media production presents the heartbreaking reality of being a non-English speaking woman confined to an institution after a single traumatic episode. Interweaving stark clinical observations drawn directly from Anna’s actual case record with expressive passages of lyrical verse, ASYLUM SONG conjures flesh and blood back on to the family skeleton.
