When the one you loved most, is the one who fucked you up the most, where do your memories take you?
After another night on the booze, Linda wakes up on the couch when an unexpected visitor arrives; it’s her Mother Alice, but this time she’s in a bag.
You’re No Good showcases the comedy in the messy and complex mother/daughter relationships, and the grief that follows in the legacy of a parent’s death. Where do we find relief? Is it in our memories? Is it in what made us laugh and cry? Or is it screaming into a pillow?
You’re No Good is a physical visual dark comedy combining clowning and story telling to explore how we experience grief and guilt.
