The Chandler Center for the Performing Arts presents “Now That She’s Gone,” written and performed by Ellen Snortland

“With a name like Snortland, she’d better be good.”

Now That She’s Gone is a play that explores Ellen Snortland’s often hilarious, irreverent and sometimes torturous relationship with her Norwegian-American mother. Now That She’s Gone has been described as a Lily Tomlin / Garrison Keillor / Eve Ensler hybrid… passionate, poignant and funny in turns. A memoir piece with Eleanor Roosevelt, sex, drugs and lutefisk, the play and performance has received rave reviews and standing ovations in California, New York, and Washington, D.C.

Nominated for a 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, “Now That She’s Gone” was first produced by EMP Theatricals, LLC, at the 2008 NY International Fringe Festival.
