22 to 22 September 2020

'Night MotherThe Fugard Theatre presents the production of ‘Night Mother, written by American playwright Marsha Norman, winner of the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

The play deals with Thelma Cates’ dilemma – what would you do if someone you loved sat down with you one night and calmly told you that she was going to end her life before morning? Cates’ daughter, Jessie, has had it.

A middle-aged epileptic unable to hold a job or drive with a failed marriage and a drug-addicted runaway son on the wrong side of the law, Jessie can find no reason to go on living.

’Night, Mother is the story of a parent’s worst nightmare. It tackles the questions, how can Thelma convince her daughter that life is worth living if she can’t feel her pain?

Tickets sales for the play go live 1 April 2020.
