Mothers and Sons
For Gay Pride month, we’ll be offering Terrance McNally’s moving Mothers and Sons – a 2014 TONY nominated Best Play.
At times both funny and powerful, Mothers and Sons 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.
