From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'night, Mother comes an unforgettable collection of plays. Includes:

Getting Out (5f 7m)
Perhaps Norman's best known work in which a young woman just released from prison fights to free herself from the confines of her past.

Third and Oak (2f 2m)
A troubled black DJ seeks out his surrogate father in a deserted pool hall, whilst in the laundromat next door two women help each other face the distress that results from absent husbands.

The Holdup (1f 3m)
Set in turn-of-the-century New Mexico, this is a celebration of the liberation of a lovable young ranch hand.

Traveler in the Dark (1f 3m)
A brilliant surgeon unable to save the life of his devoted nurse struggles with a loss of faith.

Marsha Norman looks straight at the terrifying mediocrity of so many lives, at the lethal possessiveness of parents, at the black hole of death itself. She opposes the host of powers that imprison us with a delightfully dry humour, an encompassing compassion, and an imperishable will to freedom.
