Directed by Artemisia Founding Artistic Director Julie Proudfoot, EVERY WAITING HEART was the winner of Artemisia’s 2018 Fall Festival and centers on the relationship between an overworked single mother and her rebellious teenaged daughter. Sherri and Annette have been an unbreakable mother-daughter duo since childhood, but suddenly Annette’s rebelling and Sherri’s terrified. Desperate for help, Sherri goes to a speed-dating event at a Pentecostal church that unexpectedly changes the course of both of their lives and fractures the bond that has held them together for so long. A deep and intimate dive into what it means to be a strong woman, EVERY WAITING HEART is an unflinching examination of faith and the many variations of love.
Proudfoot says “EVERY WAITING HEART is extremely special and sublime in its fierce feminist examination of the characters’ shared crisis of faith. Lauren has given us something previously unseen and incredibly unique and inspiring.”
