Marsha Norman's explosive 1983 drama 'night, Mother was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Play. Now presented at Community Actors Theatre in San Diego, the two-hander centers around Jessie, a middle-aged, down-on-her-luck woman who moves back in with her mom. As mother and daughter spend a high-stakes evening together, the ensuing debate -- sometimes quiet, sometimes tempestuous -- ultimately gives rise to some of our deepest, most personal questions about how and why we value life. Because, you see, Jessie has decided that life is no longer worth living -- and as she calmly prepares for her own death, her mother will try anything she can to stop her.
This show is recommended for ages 13 and older.
Running time: Approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.
