Home Made Theater to present ‘night, Mother

Home Made Theater will present ‘night, Mother, written by Marsha Norman, for two weekends starting Friday, March 24. The play centers around Jessie and her mother, who share an isolated house on a country road. Jessie has been through a lot, including a loveless marriage, a failed job, and a chronic neurological condition. At the beginning of the play, Jessie asks for her father’s revolver and calmly announces that she intends to kill herself.
