WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Nominated for 2 Tony Awards including Best Play!
Starring Tony and Emmy® Award winner Tyne Daly (Gypsy, Master Class, Cagney & Lacey) in a tour-de-force role, the play follows a mother who pays a surprise visit to the New York apartment of her late son's ex-partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her—without her—she is finally able to see the rich life her son might have led.
Strikingly timely and deeply compassionate, Mothers and Sons is about the evolving definition of family and the healing power of forgiveness. It is that rare Broadway drama filled with powerful performances, sharp humor and the human truth that makes for uniquely compelling theater. Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall) directs.
