How My Mother Died Of Cancer, and Other Bedtime Stories, inspired by Kellyʼs real-life
loss of his mother and including elements of his own experience, reflects humorously
and sometimes uncomfortably on the effects of death on a family. Structured as a play
within a play, it depicts a group of loved ones trying to cope with a matriarchʼs absence,each othersʼ presence, and the complications that ensue when competing versions of the same life story are told. Part tragedy, part comedy, and part eulogy, the piece strives to take the audience on a revealing and personal journey through diagnosis, treatment,funeral, and everything after.
