The Tarrant Actors Regional Theatre will open its 2019-20 season in September with Marsha Norman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, ‘Night, Mother, performed in the Sanders Theatre at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth TX 76107. The production is directed by TART Artistic Director Allen Walker.
In this gripping and emotionally compelling drama, Thelma “Mama” Cates and her middle-aged daughter, Jessie, share a small house on an isolated country road. Jessie, an epileptic, unable to hold a job or drive a car, with a failed marriage and a drug-addicted son on the wrong side of the law, has decided this evening to end her own life. A poignant, often humorous, and moving portrait of one mother-daughter relationship, ‘Night, Mother presents compelling arguments for just how much control we do and should have over our own lives, and how our life choices affect those closest to us.
