Heirloom by Mike Geither

June 3, 2021


Written & performed by Mike Geither

Heirloom is a non-­fiction solo performance about four generations of my extended maternal family that’s based on interviews and historical records. Beginning with my mother and her siblings, and moving on to her father and grandfather’s lives, it examines the social and emotional inheritance of an extended family affected by incest, alcoholism, violence and genocide. It attempts to shed understanding on how any single person may affect the generation of family members that follow him or her and to glean a greater understanding of the dynamics of incest and rape.
