The House of Lily

Motherhood. That cow-like state of milked contentment. The little monster learns to pee in a pot. Wow! It takes its first steps. Yey! It steps right out of your life. Zap! Gone. The illusion of total connection. An umbilical farce.

Two women, one man

What happens when Lily, a lesbian-feminist with unshakeable views on men, marriage and motherhood, brings her aging father who is slipping into dementia home to live with her? In this comedy of manners, Lily’s father begins to turn Lily first into his young bride and then into other roles she has rebelled against her whole life. Add to the mix, her friend, Gina, who Lily wants as her lover and an absurd triangle ensues that will break Lily’s well-ordered world apart.
