Unlike most tales of addiction, Mother Knows Best highlights one woman's denial and the toll it takes on her family. It is a comedy about the manners of a Jewish mother, Dore Schecter, and the tragedy of her failure to protect her children. This one-woman show follows Dore as she wrestles with recovery, alone onstage as her addiction has made her alone in life.​
