Dressing Amelia

Sometimes, it’s just a dress. Sometimes, it’s so much more.

A daughter struggles to reconcile the past she thought she knew with a wardrobe full of roles to try on. Upstairs, Amelia is still angry with her mother and refuses to leave her childhood room because she doesn’t have anything appropriate to wear. Downstairs, her grandmother is entertaining the guests who have arrived while Thomas and Grace indulge Amelia’s retrospection on her childhood. Amelia’s missed some things over the years, including her mom’s questionable relationship with her high school neighbor. In a dizzying journey of crayons, circus acts and lavender martinis, Dressing Amelia is a lovingly penned letter for the mothers and daughters seeking to connect through states of mania and inherited trauma. Sometimes it’s just a dress and sometimes it’s so much more.
