This event has expired and is here for your information.

The Full Moon Players and Cypress Moon Studios Presents “‘Night, Mother” September 21-24, 2023, from 7-10PM! Starring Elizabeth Ragsdale and Macy Ladner! Come see this influential Pulitzer Prize Winning Play by Marsha Norman followed by a panel discussion on mental health and suicide awareness. This show is produced by Tonya Holly, and directed by Brynn Albretsen and Eli Milliman.

What would you do if someone you loved sat down with you one night and calmly told you that they were going to end their life before morning? This is Thelma Cates' dilemma. Her daughter Jessie has had it. A middle-aged epileptic unable to drive or hold a job, with a failed marriage and a drug-addicted runaway son on the wrong side of the law, Jessie can find no reason to keep living. Adapted from the play by Marsha Norman, "'night, Mother" is the story of a parent's worst nightmare. How can Thelma convince her daughter that life is worth living if she can't feel her pain? How can she end her daughter's embrace of death before morning?
