Mothers and Sons

by Terrance McNally

At turns funny and powerful, MOTHERS AND SONS portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.

Director Sherry Kratzer has selected a seasoned cast with Paul Michael Brinker as Cal, Lynn Marcus as Katherine, Mike Cutler as Will and newcomers Luca Bowen and Julian  Pirie taking turns as Young Bud.

This production will be presented on Friday and Saturday, March 2 & 3, March 9 & 10 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 4 & 11 at 2 pm.  Tickets are available on line at dorsetplayers.org
