'night, Mother

This Pulitzer Prize winning play is about struggle and discovery through a very high-stakes "tug-of-war" between a mother and her daughter.  As the play opens, Jessie calmly asks her mother for her father’s revolver, in order to commit suicide that night.  With brutal honesty she reveals the reasons for her decision, and as time ticks away, Jessie extricates herself from this world as her Mama tries desperately to hold onto her. Ironically, Mama’s reasons for her daughter to stay are the very things that push Jessie to want to go.  This dialogue which most never get to have about suicide provides an invitation for us to reflect on our lives and the relationships which connect us to our own humanity.
