At turns funny and powerful, this extraordinary play portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.
– “Director Jyl Hewston skillfully guides the strong cast on a rollercoaster ride through anger, sadness, loss and, ultimately, hope for the future. It is a challenging piece … but the cast and crew more than rise to that challenge. Highly recommended.” – Pat Bitton, North Coast Journal
– “Experiencing Terrence McNally’s Mothers and Sons is like slowly peeling away each layer of an emotional onion that brings you closer to tears as you journey to the broken heart where it all began. It’s a rocky road well worth taking.” – Beti Webb Trauth, Times-Standard Urge
Mothers & Sons concluded its run on May 14, 2016
