'Night, Mother

The Lost Studio

130 S. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036

8:00pm

Marsha Norman’s gripping two-hander, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, is an intense, edge-of-your-seat drama that will keep audiences guessing the outcome until the very end. A supposedly normal evening in the mother-daughter Cates household is shattered when 40-something Jessie announces to Mama that she plans to kill herself before the night is over. Over the course of 90 minutes, in real time, Thelma desperately works to convince her daughter that life is worth living. Eloquent and darkly humorous, ’night, Mother has been hailed as an American classic and one of the most powerful contemporary dramas ever written. Nov. 1 – Dec. 14; The Lost Studio, 130 South La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036; $20-$27.50; 818-826-3609
