In the middle of the night, a woman bakes bread using her mother's illegible recipe. But something is different. Her kitchen becomes host to both present and past as drawers are emptied, mess is made, and the bread-baking process—the kneading, rising, punching down, shaping, and baking—becomes a journey of memory and discovery and the unpredictability of, well, just about everything. Will there at least be butter? Knead, Punch, Bake is a one-woman show with music, written and performed by Mary Lynn Owen.
