About The Play

Things are looking up for recovering alcoholic Jackie and his girlfriend Veronica-until Jackie spots another man's hat in their apartment and embarks on a sublimely incompetent quest for vengeance. Fast-paced and uproarious, MOTHER is a gleefully foul-mouthed look at modern love and other addictions.
