This world premiere by four time Tony Award®- winning playwright Terrence McNally, starring Tony and Emmy® Award-winner Tyne Daly, is the story of the mother of a young man who died from AIDS and his partner at the time of her son’s death. In the many years since they last met, both their lives have changed — more than either of them could have possibly imagined. This new play asks us to consider how far we have come as a society in need of healing and how far we still have to go.
