‘night, Mother by Marsha Norman

Two women, one gun and a cup of cocoa ... who will win?

  • Dates 7 - 17 August

The turbulent tale of a mother-daughter relationship rejuvenated by the daughter’s admission she will kill herself that evening.

On an ordinary Saturday night Jessie tells her mother, ‘I’m going to kill myself’. Unfolding in real time over the next 90 minutes, and building like a sonata, a domesticated apocalypse reveals itself in a quiet suburban living room.

As the clock ticks down to the gripping conclusion … is there time for one night of absolute honesty before it’s too late?

The meaning of life is under the microscope in this electrifying fight for survival at the ultimate cost.

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


Proudly supported by City of Stonnington Arts and Cultural Grants.
