Marsha Norman's Pulitzer Prize Winning 'night, Mother, directed by Ryan T. Daniel, opens an April 19-29 run this week at Murfreesboro's Out Front On Main, performing Thursday through Sunday nights at 7:30 p.m. each evening

`night, Mother is described as a one-act play with two characters on the stage, Jessie Cates (played by Lora Phillips Hortert), who lives with her mother, Thelma (Meigie Mabry). The play opens with Jessie asking her mother where a particular gun is kept. She finds it with Thelma's help.

As she cleans the gun, Jessie quietly announces she's going to be killing herself at the end of the evening. Jessie's announcement sets off a fierce struggle between mother and daughter, with Thelma using every strategy she can conceive of to talk Jessie out of her plan. Thelma becomes so desperate, she even resorts to telling Jessie the truth about a number of issues that have affected her life.

Reservations and further information are available at (615) 869-8617 or at www.outfrontonmain.com. Out Front on Main is located at 1511 E. Main Street, Murfreesboro, bordering the MTSU campus.
