The newest play by four-time Tony Award-winning playwright, Terrence McNally, Mothers and Sons was nominated for the 2014 Best Play Tony Award. The story follows a mother whose young son died of AIDS several years prior. When she unexpectedly visits the home of her son's ex-partner (which now includes his husband and their child), she is forced to come to terms with how much society has changed without her and the full life her son might have enjoyed. This play is a deeply compassionate and touching look at the transformative nature of forgiveness and the evolving definition of family.
