It’s 1976 and Elizabeth is just your average suburban 11-year-old praying for adolescence to arrive when she discovers her whole life has been a lie after the revelation that she is adopted. With only her imagination to guide her, Elizabeth runs away in search of her true identity, after convincing herself that country music superstar Dolly Parton is her real mum. This leads to a cathartic cross-country trek by a mother searching for a daughter who’s searching for a mother – both of them really searching for themselves…. The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mum is a poignant, funny, very female, coming of age story that explores the tension between creating identity and finding it within.
