The Bonesetter’s Daughter

June 8–July 3, 2022

Ruth wants to be a better daughter to a mother whose mind is quickly sliding into the haze of dementia. If only her mother—who spent Ruth’s childhood talking to ghosts, lamenting a family curse, and refusing to acclimate to life in America—was just a little easier to love. When Ruth rediscovers a stack of papers in the bottom of a drawer, carefully penned in calligraphy, she realizes that it may not be too late to meet a woman she thought had been lost to her long ago. The Bonesetter’s Daughter is a deeply moving chronicle of war and revenge, joy and connection, and the profound love that can exist between mothers and daughters.
