The Ghent Playhouse presents the regional premier of Mothers and Sons – a
timely and touching contemporary play about change, reconciliation and
becoming a family.

Mothers and Sons opens on Friday, March 17 and runs through Sunday,
April 2 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday
afternoons at 2 p.m.

“Words are the bridge we build across the void that separates us.”

A Dallas matriarch pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former
partner, who is now married to another man and raising a young son.  Forced
to consider the life her son may have had, the woman must now come to terms
with her own life choices and how society has changed around her.
