Ask, I Will Tell
A New Musical by Ben Diskant
Ask, I Will Tell is a 90-minute musical that explores, through three generations of women, how we try and outrun the mistakes of our parents, only to create new ones.
Jo’s world is thrown into chaos when she’s unexpectedly saddled with caring for her mother who has dementia. As she desperately fights to keep her position as Dean of Journalism, Jo must also face the fact that the strained relationship with her mother has been accidentally mirrored with her own daughter, Dylan. With a new awareness of the fragility of time, Jo must find a way to reclaim her life and connect with her daughter before it’s too late.
Ask I Will Tell intimately examines the inability to communicate with the people we love the most.
