"Never have a daughter," Artie advises the audience early in "Eleemosynary." "She won't like you."
Lee Blessing's play is a celebration of words and the three generations of articulate women in the Westbrook family who use them as tools and weapons, and Pygmalion Theatre Company's tender and telling production effortlessly explores the dynamic that pulls them together and drives them apart. Barb Gandy (Dorothea), Tracie Merrill (Artie) and Sydney Shoell (Echo) interact so naturally that we never doubt they are a family. - Barbara Bannon, Salt Lake Tribune

Eleemosynary probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie's daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect and sensitivity, whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea.
