With Diana Rigg as Huma Rojo.
After nearly 20 years, Pedro Almodovar has permitted the production of a major play based on one of his films, and for the first time the rights have been granted for an English language presentation.
All About My Mother is a passionate hymn to the strength and spirit of women; a kaleidoscopic drama embracing motherhood, love and desire; a homage to the great Hollywood movies. Following the tragic death of her beloved son, Manuela goes to Barcelona in search of the father he never knew. But before she can exorcise her guilt, she gets caught up in the lives of three women: Agrado, a long-lost transvestite friend, Rosa, a young nun in search of love, and Huma Rojo, the famous actress her son so admired. Just as Manuela's life begins to have meaning again, her son's father returns and her journey of discovery and forgiveness comes full circle.
