How do we reconcile the love we feel for family members when we don’t agree with their decisions?
This show is about a father/daughter relationship that opens a window to life on a Minnesota farm where farmers are told to “Go Big or Get Out.” Pamela reveals her struggle of wanting to maintain the bond she has with her father while being true to her own values. Journey along from age 8 where she easily goes along with his views to the growing tension of being a teenager with her own wants and needs. As life goes on religion, racism and corporate greed are examined. Her love of truth shines a spotlight on it all.
“It’s been deeply moving to see how touched people are by this show,” says the playwright and actress Pamela Ziemann. “Many audience members have returned to see the show multiple times contemplating their own lives and making major shifts because of it.”
She’s performed this show at United Solo in New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Tucson and Canadian Fringe Festivals as well as Center for Spiritual Living in Visalia, CA, Fairmont Opera House in Minnesota and Rialto Theater in Pocahontas, Iowa.
