Praise for "My Mother Told Me"


"...low...has long experience and considerable skill at his craft."
- John Munger, Twin Cities Daily Planet

"low’s propulsive cadence and richly detailed narrative command attention..."
- Brad Richason, Twin Cities Performance Art Examiner

"This is his thing - what he does is epic fantasy quest stories. He dresses them up as something else, but that's what they are...he has these densely packed, philosophy filled sentences; he packs three hours into one hour."
- Rob Callahan, Vita.Mn

About the Show


Armed only with the dubious advice of his mother, a boy sets out to conquer a world full of peril, romance and perilous romance.

The Valley of Love follows a young man as he journeys away from home for the first time. Raised by a protective mother trying to shield him from the world, his journey is filled with unintended consequences and a growing awareness of the world around him.
