A gathering to commemorate the twenty-fifth edition of Martha Fisher’s celebrated book of poems brings her fractured family back home – all except Martha herself, who committed suicide soon after the book’s original publication. Haunted by the past and events they can’t explain, her family struggles to move forward. How can they reconcile the Martha who wrote so brilliantly about the joys of living, and the hidden Martha who ended her own life?  Into this volatile mix, a young stranger arrives, forcing them to resolve the dreams of their youth with the people they have become. What Martha Did is a darkly funny drama about regret, facing the truth, and finding forgiveness.

By Enid Graham and directed by Risa Brainin.
