Tonight at 7:30 pm, the Hammer Museum presents the program True Stories from the Plays of Beth Henley. The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Henley is joined by actors Ed Harris, Diane Keaton, Amy Madigan and Belita Moreno to read excerpts from her plays, which include Crimes of the Heart, The Miss Firecracker Contest, Sisters of the Winter Madrigal, Ridiculous Fraud and most recently, The Jacksonian. There’s a discussion following the readings with series organizer Mona Simpson.

“You know, mom, sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had told you how much I love the sound of your laughter. Would that have made you feel proud of yourself? Or what if I just told you how proud I was to be the daughter of a really special former Mrs. Los Angeles? Would that have made a difference? Or if I’d, oh god, told you how quickly I ran home to you the day Dave Garland stuck his finger in my padded bra and made me feel humiliated? Would you have finally understood that you were irreplaceable, mom?,” mused Keaton. “Or what if I just told you how much fun it was for me just to sit across from the kitchen counter and watch you make your midafternoon snack of Wheat Thins with longhorns and dill pickles on the side, would you have felt fulfilled?”
Keaton went on to say that she’ll regret not saying those words to her mother “when she could have really understood” for the rest of her life, and that sometimes she wonders if Dot can hear her words “now that she’s just dust blowing in the Arizona sky.”
Diane was honored today (and presented her award by Sarah Paulson!) at today’s The Hollywood Reporter’s “Power 100: Women In Entertainment” Breakfast, and I’ve added photos to the Delightful Diane Keaton Gallery.
