In Her Own Voice, which will be performed on Mother's Day at the Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale after debuting in February in Tucson, chronicles this busy, fruitful life, emphasizing her mother's lifelong love affair with her husband and her close friendships, most notably with that great Catholic lefty Dorothy Day, the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement. Wolter's piece ends with an account of her mother's death from cancer in 1989 and of the culmination of "her search for meaning in life."
Wolter works as the Community Arts Coordinator for the Mesa Arts Center. Proceeds from the Kerr performance benefit the Friends of Mesa Arts Center.
Nancy Wolter's In Her Own Voice: Stories of My Mother is scheduled to be performed at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 14, at Kerr Cultural Center, 6110 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Tickets are $10, plus a $1 facility fee for Kerr. For details call 480-965-5377 (Kerr).
