Palm Beach Dramaworks Opens Season with 'night, Mother
WEST PALM BEACH, FL (October 16, 2004) - Palm Beach Dramaworks Studio Theatre proudly begins it's fifth season with the weighty, satisfying fare of Marsha Norman's Pulitzer prize winner, 'night, Mother. This enthralling drama, features four-time Carbonell award-winning actress Barbara Bradshaw as Thelma Cates, and Nanique Gheridian, Dramaworks Managing Artistic Director, as her daughter Jessie. This eloquent and ultimately shattering drama, set in a rural southern community, explores a young woman's intention to commit suicide, and her mother's desperate fight to save her. The play is directed by Dramaworks Producing Artistic Director, William Hayes, who finds the work, "extremely powerful, written with realism, honesty and psychological accuracy." New York Magazine calls it "...honest, uncompromising, lucid, penetrating, well-written, dramatic, and...unmanipulatively moving...", and the New York Times finds it ". as artfully designed as a sonata..." This truly poignant and powerful play, opens November 5th and runs through December 5th. The theatre is located in heart of downtown West Palm Beach, at 322 Banyan Blvd, between Dixie Hwy and Olive Ave. Parking is offered across the street for a nominal fee, or in the City Garage on the corner of Olive Avenue and Banyan Boulevard for $1.00 per hour with the first hour free.
