The acclaimed drama will play the Philadelphia venue Feb. 6-March 8, 2015. Casting will be announced at a later time.
In Mothers and Sons, according to press notes, "a woman pays an unexpected visit to the apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. A 2014 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, this eloquent, timely, and intensely resonant play is a moving reflection on a changed America and our ever-evolving understanding of family."
“We are thrilled to include Terrence’s timely and compassionate play as part of our 40th Anniversary celebration. I think audiences connect so deeply with his work because his characters are so richly drawn, with equal measures of unflinching honesty and empathy for what makes them – and us – human,” said executive producing director Sara Garonzik in a statement.
Philadelphia Theatre Company's upcoming season will also include Lisa D’Amour’s Detroit; the Tony Award-nominated Outside Mullingar by Oscar-winning writer John Patrick Shanley; brownsville song (b-side for tray), a hit of this year's Humana Festival of New American Plays, by rising playwright Kimber Lee; and Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair's musical whodunit Murder for Two.
