Shakin’ the Mess Outta Misery is the story of a young black girl's coming of age in the 1960s South. “Daughter,” the main character and 25-year-old narrator lost her mother when she was very young and a community of women raised her, some blood related, some not. As she remembers how her 'Big Mamas' prepared her for womanhood, the women enter to tell their stories and “Daughter” becomes a child again reliving her vivid memories.
