'night, Mother by Marsha Norman

DescriptionIron Lung Theatre presents 'night, Mother by Marsha Norman.
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.
As the clock ticks down to the gripping conclusion is there time for one night of absolute honesty? The meaning of life is under the microscope in this electrifying fight for survival at the ultimate cost.
Two women ... one gun ... and a cup of cocoa. Who will win?
Four-time Tony Award nominated play and 1983 Pulitzer Prize winner ’night, Mother is a devastating exploration of love, quiet savagery and chocolate.
