  • Singing the Bones, the play on April 14, 2011

    I saw Singing the Bones as a film at a childbirth association fundraiser. The theater was filled with young mothers, nurses, and nurse-midwives; a tough audience averse to romanticizing the birthing experience, who was nevertheless captivated from the start. When the lights came up there was a pause as the crowd sat still, absorbing the experience, wiping away tears. That was the last moment of silence, however, as the group burst into an enthusiastic discussion. They agreed the film was authentic and powerful; the cinematography was beautiful, the driving sound track was perfectly attuned to the action, the story poignant. Caitlin is an incredibly talented writer and actor and I hope someday to see her perform this play in person.

    This is such a touching story, beautifully written. It's no surprise that a young woman, barely an adult, is incapable of grasping the significance of her mother's startling request, but afraid to ask for explanation. She returns empty-handed and is stricken by her mother's disappointment. But years later, when she returns to France with her own family, they acknowledge the tragic loss and honor the sacrifice of a very young soldier. It's sad and very sweet closure.
