From Pittsburgh Magazine:

Playwright and producer Audrey Rose Dégez has written a script that sheds light on decades of cultural suppression in Ukraine, misconceptions of Ukrainian culture and the resiliency of its residents.

Her Pittsburgh-based artistic residency, Slovo. Theater Group, features professional actors from Kharkiv, a city in northeast Ukraine. The group, partnering with the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, will perform the play, “Mothermotherland,” at 3 p.m. this Saturday, Jan. 7, at City Theatre, 1300 Bingham St. in the South Side.

“Mothermotherland” explores motherland, maternity and self through the lens of the 1924 short story “I am (a Romantic)” by Ukrainian writer Mykola Khvylovy, a description of the show reads.
