Uptown Players continues its 2016 season with the regional premiere of the 2014 Tony Award nominated play, Mothers and Sons.
At times funny and powerful, Terrence McNally’s Tony-nominated play portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner; he is now married to another man and they have 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. Mothers and Sons explores family and forgiveness in a changing society.
The Uptown Players production stars Marjorie Hayes, Gregory Lush, Kevin Moore, and Alex Prejean.
