"Mothers and Sons"

Mothers and Sons
Terrence McNally

Damian Vega and Lillian Bogovich
Much has changed in the world around them since those days when AIDS was both a sure death sentence and a reason for many families to turn their backs in shame and righteousness on its victims.  What has not changed is the prevailing ache of loss, the futile need still to find blame, and the resulting anger for those Polaroid moments when backs were turned and hugs, not given.  In a gripping, raw-nerved unveiling of emotions long pent-up and unexpressed, City Lights Theater Company presents a search for resolution and forgiveness in the Tony nominated play of Terrence McNally, Mothers and Sons.  

For my complete review, please continue to Talkin' Broadway:
