What's On

La Mama


This gripping play has two endings, and at the completion of Act 2, the audience vote for the one they think is appropriate.

A family has come together to choose a nursing home for their mother. She has Alzheimer’s. Jack wants them to let her go, tonight, and he has brought the means to do it. Jack will be so convincing that you may find yourself not only being persuaded into thinking that his way is right, but wondering whether this is a new morality struggling to evolve. On the other hand you may feel that this is just good old evil, hidden in the sheepskin of logic.

Let her go? Place her in a home? You decide.
