grace

Contemporary theater | 2014



Grace, inspired by a true story, journeys to the heart of the relationship between Grace McDaniels, whose freak show nickname was “The Mule-Faced Woman”, and her son Elmer, who was her exact opposite. Beautiful but an alcoholic, a gambler and a thief, he became his mother’s manager and exploiter. We are left with the portrait of a man, dark and as opaque as his mother’s face. But who can you be when you are the son of the “Ugliest Woman in the World”?
