Vermont Stage Produces Mothers And Sons By Terrence Mcnally
(BURLINGTON, VT) Vermont Stage is pleased to announce that its production of MOTHERS AND SONS, written by Terrence McNally, will be playing at FlynnSpace from January 27 through February 14, 2016.
MOTHERS AND SONS is a gripping new drama about change, reconciliation, and what it means to be a family. Cal and his husband Will have built a happy life together with their 7-year-old son. When the mother of Andre, Cal’s former lover, makes a surprise visit 20 years after her son’s untimely death, the past casts a shadow on their idyllic life.
The Chicago Tribune has called McNally’s play “eloquent, exceptionally timely and intensely resonant. A moving reflection on a changed America.” It was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play in 2014 and has been produced both on- and off-Broadway. Under the direction of Gregory Ramos, this stunning drama is brought to life by its wonderful cast. John Jensen* will appear as Cal; Justin D. Quackenbush as
Will, Cal’s husband; Asa Baker-Rouse as Bud, Will and Cal’s young son; and Peggy Lewis* as Katharine. The production team consists of Scenic Design by Jeff Modereger, Lighting Design by John B. Forbes, Costume Design by Cora Fauser, Sound Design by Martha Goode, and Production Stage Management by Nicole Kutcher.
Vermont Stage, started in 1994, is Burlington’s home for contemporary theatre. Now in its 22nd season, Vermont Stage has four remaining shows this season: MOTHERS AND SONS, DANCING LESSONS, I AND YOU, and THE BAKE OFF.
