two women, a gun and a cup of cocoa…

On an ordinary Saturday night Jessie Cates calmly tells her mother, ‘I’m going to kill myself’. Unfolding in real time over ninety minutes and building like a sonata, ‘night, Mother is the turbulent tale of a mother-daughter relationship.

Four-time Tony Award nominated play and 1983 Pulitzer Prize winner ’night, Mother is a devastating exploration of love, quiet savagery and chocolate.
