Mothers and Sons

"Fantastic! McNally captures a moment of hope and promise…MOTHERS AND SONS feels like the sun on your face!”
—NBC New York.

"A wonderful Hamlet on his way to becoming a great one" is how Cal describes his deceased lover, Andre when Katherine, Andre's mother, shows up unexpectedly on his doorstep. In this funny and moving piece Tony Award winning playwright Terrence McNally's sharp dialogue illustrates how reconciling loss and transgression can reveal the enduring nature of love.

"A MASTERPIECE! Terrence McNally is one of the greatest contemporary playwrights the theatre world has yet produced. MOTHERS AND SONS is profound. Heartbreaking. Triumphant."
—NY Observer.
