Rumstick Road

A video reconstruction of the landmark 1977 production Rumstick Road which combined audio taped conversations, family letters, dance, 35mm slides and the writing of Mary Baker Eddy to construct a response to the suicide of Spalding Gray’s mother.

‘A brilliant and engrossing work; one whose abstraction and complexity are at the service of genuine emotion.’
