BWW Feature: NIGHT, MOTHER SET TO HIT THE STAGE IN ORONO at Some Theatre CompanyNominated for four Tony Awards and winner of the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 'night, Mother by Marsha Norman is an eloquent, enthralling and ultimately shattering play that explores the final hours in the life of a woman who has decided that life is no longer worth living.

'night, Mother'' has been described as a ''shattering evening'' in the theater, an experience that leaves many audiences stunned and weeping.

This play tells the story of Jessie, an epileptic woman who systematically prepares for her own death and the frantic and touching efforts of her mother, Thelma, to stop her, changing her own life forever.

With humor, wisdom and keen insight, Norman's 'night, Mother takes two seemingly ordinary women, mother, and daughter and watches them as they come to grips with the value of their own lives, and express what many of us have felt at one time or another: why am I here?

The message this play delivers is not only vitally important in today's world, but it is also delivered in such a way that it deeply resonates with the audience on many levels, so much so, it will stay with them long after it is over.
