Theresa is in her second show with Antrim, previously playing Babe in Crimes of the Heart. She played Grandma in 2006 with WMP. Inspiration was found from bonds between her, her mom Gloria and Grandma. Grandma Theresa had six children, including two who died at young ages. In the 1930s-40s, Grandma took care of her brood without a husband, working two jobs as a seamstress. The boys went to war while Gloria helped around the house, sang opera and was a dreamer. Gloria would later take care of Grandma, a sick husband, mentally ill daughter and autistic grandson. I dedicate my performance to the memory of these incredibly strong women & thank Derek for casting me.
