"In Natural Affection, a troubled young man, who, abandoned early in life by his single mother (Erbe), returns from reform school to find her now living with a lover," press notes state. "As the tension between them mounts, their fight for forgiveness and connection gives way to desperation, setting this insecure family on a collision course of reckless, heartbreaking and almost inevitable violence."
The creative team comprises John McDermott (sets), David Toser (costumes), Mary Louise Geiger (lights), Toby Algya (sound) and Lauren Madden (properties).
