'Night Mother
Drama
–Theatre R
It won't be goodnight, but goodbye.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, this eloquent, enthralling and ultimately shattering play explores the final hour in the life of a young woman who has decided that life is no longer worth living. Disillusioned Jessie, a woman suffering from epilepsy and depression, announces to her mother Thelma that she will be ending her own life. The ensuing evening is what playwright Marsha Norman describes as, “a fight for their lives” as Thelma begs, bargains and beseeches her daughter to change her plan.

 

THIS PRODUCTION WILL BE PRESENTED WITHOUT AN INTERMISSION.
