When Tony winner Stephen Spinella calls The Velocity of Autumn a rollercoaster ride, he's undoubtedly referring to acting opposite Broadway legend Estelle Parsons. But he's also talking about moments in the play that make the audience "start cheering and screaming" — an impressive feat for a play about the relationship between an old woman and her adult son. It all starts to make sense, however, when you take a look at the show's art and see Parson's character, a grandmotherly smile on her face and a Molotov cocktail in her hand.
