In The Velocity of Autumn, a son asks himself whether he should put his mother in a nursing home. His mother's answer is a literally explosive NO! Eric Coble's new play stars Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons as an elderly woman who threatens to blow up her Brooklyn brownstone with Molotov cocktails after her youngest son, played by Tony Award winner Stephen Spinella, tries to make her leave it. TheaterMania spoke to the cast about how this play is lighting a fire under audiences.
