Mother & Son

Mother and Son

- Produced by Jally Entertainment

Julie McGregor and Christopher Truswell will take on the roles made famous by Ruth Cracknell and Garry McDonald in this nostalgic trip down loss-of-memory lane.

Mother & Son reinvigorates a treasured Australian comedy icon with Atherden’s distinctive brand of acerbic wit, mixing together the sweet, the sharp, the savage and the sad in Maggie and Arthur’s complex, dysfunctional relationship.

This freshened version of the beloved Logie Award-winning show finds long-suffering second son Arthur Beare hoping for the chance to finally take his new flame Anita away on a little holiday. His only chance for a break involves recruiting help from his successful but selfish brother Robert – but this first-born favourite has enough on his hands. The philandering dentist has been doing distinctly unhygienic things with his hygienist, and when his wife finds out, Arthur’s troubles double as Robert lands on the doorstep. It doesn’t help that manipulative Maggie is in fine form and sabotaging Arthur’s chances of romance at every turn.

Reviews

“The show had plenty of laugh out loud moments, making for a relaxing and memorable night out.” - Her Canberra

“Mother & Son on stage is a social commentary on changing times. It is all about the art of ageing – and will succeed as long as we continue to laugh out loud (LOL) at ourselves.” - Carolyn McDowall, The Culture Concept Circle

“The fine nuanced acting and direction are superb – comedy is all about timing, and there were no miss-hits in this production.” - SCENESTR
