Description

Dottie has trained young Betty to be the perfect 1950s housewife; to cook the
perfect pot roast, to bake a gorgeous seven-layer cake, to remove any stain.
And tonight, Betty’s 18th birthday, it is time for Betty to go out into
the world.  Only Dottie has failed to mention that the year is 2007, that
the world is a vast and complex place, and that there is a reason she cannot
abide being called 'Mother'. Ghosts from the past haunt the women and shatter
their idyllic, if odd, existence. When a mysterious traveler is stranded at
their home, he brings a revelation that forces Betty to choose between the love
of her 'mother' and her freedom and sanity.  YOU MAY GO NOW is an adult fairy tale about a 'mother' and
'daughter' whose love is as real as it is destructive.
