‘Night Mother reading at Bowie State University, Oct 20
Coffee, Tea, and Classics: Reading and Discussion Series: ‘Night, Mother
October 20, 2016 7:30pm
Parental Advisory: Recommended for high school students and above.
Delve into an intellectual reading and discussion of the classic drama ‘Night, Mother by Marsha Norman. Student director Sophie Barden will transport you to a living room and kitchen of a small house on an isolated country road. There you will meet Jessie, whose father is dead, whose loveless marriage ended in divorce, whose absent son is a petty thief and ne’er-do-well, and whose last job didn’t work out and, in general, whose life is stale and unprofitable. All of which lead her to ask her mother for her father’s service revolver and calmly announces that she intends to kill herself.
After the reading, there will be a panel discussion on suicide prevention and awareness.
This event is hosted by the BSU chapter of Alpha Psi Omega and BSU Theatre.
Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University.
