Marsha Norman's four-time Tony Award nominated play and 1983 Pulitzer Prize winner 'night, Mother comes to Chapel Off Chapel for a strictly limited season in August. Tickets are now on sale.
Presented by Iron Lung Theatre, 'night, Mother is a devastating exploration of love, quiet savagery and chocolate.
Iron Lung Theatre is dedicated to staging plays which feature characters living on the outer realms of human endurance.
This contemporary classic, which premiered on Broadway in 1983 with Anne Pitoniak and Kathy Bates in the lead roles, has been performed the world over and features two tour-de-force roles for women.
This exciting production, directed by Briony Dunn, will star four-time Green Room award winner Caroline Lee and Iron Lung co-Artistic Director and NIDA graduate Esther van Doornum.
On an ordinary Saturday night, Jessie Cates calmly tells her mother, 'I'm going to kill myself'. Unfolding in real time over ninety minutes and building like a sonata, 'night, Mother is the turbulent tale of a mother-daughter relationship.
As the clock ticks down to the gripping conclusion … is there time for one night of absolute honesty? The meaning of life is under the microscope in this electrifying fight for survival at the ultimate cost.
Two women, one gun and a cup of cocoa. Who will win?
The crew includes Juliette Whitney (Set & Costume Design), Julia Landberg (Production Manager) and Clare Springett (Lighting Design).
