Few plays on Broadway today speak as urgently to our times as the 20th Broadway production from legendary four-time past Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally. A mother visits the former lover of her late son, only to find him married to another man and raising a small child. A funny, vibrant, and moving look at one woman's journey as she reflects on her life, how society has changed—and how she might, too. Mothers and Sons is a provocative and powerful new play, sparking candid conversations about connection, forgiveness - and the evolving definition of family.


Mothers and Sons had its world premiere production at Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Playhouse in June, 2013.


  • This is playwright McNally's 20th Broadway show.
  • Tyne Daly’s most recent Broadway appearance was in a 2011 revival of McNally’s play Master Class.
