Description: The plot of the Grandmother centers around a boy who, looking for an escape from his abusive parents, grows a grandmother to comfort him. “There’s something about a grandmother…It came from this particular character’s need – a need that that prototype can provide. Grandmothers get playful. And they relax a little, and they have unconditional love. And that’s what this kid, you know, conjured up.”3 The cast once again consisted of people Lynch knew. Virginia Maitland and Bob Chadwick were friends from art school. Dorothy McGinnis was a co-worker at Lynch’s job printing engravings. Richard White was a local kid from the neighborhood.
