MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will open “Mothers and Sons” by Terrence McNally on March 27 in the Andreas Theatre at the Early Center for the Performing Arts.

“Mothers and Sons” tells the story of 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.

MFA directing candidate David T. Loudermilk is directing “Mothers and Sons,” and he explains that this show is all about relationships: “For me, this play is just as much about the script as it is the audience that surrounds us while we experience it. I hope that this show does not end when the curtain falls, but the dialogue continues, because it is necessary.”

“Mothers and Sons” runs March 27-30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Andreas Theatre at the Earley Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota State University, Mankato. Tickets are $10 regular, $9 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $8 for Minnesota State Mankato students.

The Box Office is open 4-6 p.m. weekdays in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center, or buy single tickets online at Call the Box Office at 507-389-6661.
