'Night Mother, by Marsha Norman
'Night Mother
Monday, January 28, 2008
5.0
I saw 'Night Mother' last Friday (02/25/08)at Theatre on Main and I can't recommend this show enough! Teresa Harris and Carolyn Choe give two of the best performances I've ever seen. Sometimes when you know the actors in a show, it can distract you when you're seeing the performance. Not so in this case. Carolyn and Teresa bring these characters to life so brilliantly that I only saw a mother and daughter trying to make sense of a dramatic choice the daughter has made.

If this play doesn't move you to tears, you might want to seek professional help. It is a beautiful show dealing with a very sensitive subject matter. Never becoming preachy, the story comes across with such a natural feel, you will forget you are watching a play. Within the first few moments, I felt like a I was sitting in the living room with these two characters watching what should have been a private moment for them. You identify with these characters. You feel for each one of them but in profoundly different ways. I promise, this play will make an impact on you. If anything, it will get you to think about your own life and the people you love.
