Mothers and Sons is a timely and provocative new play that explores our evolving understanding of family in today’s world.  At turns funny and powerful, Mothers and Sons portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.

In addition to its two Tony® Award nominations, Mothers and Sons was nominated by The Drama League for Outstanding Production of a Play; and Tyne Daly was nominated for her performance by The Drama League, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards.
