Mother (1994)


The world premiere of "Mother" by Patricia Spears Jones. Featuring Ruth Maleczech, this multi-disciplinary, multi-media work in the subject of a revolutionary mother was inspired by Gorky's revolutionary novel, and was directed by John Edward McGrath 

The Mabou Mines production was a grand interactive experience, with the audience sitting in small groups in fully-functioning "realistic" kitchens with televisions, microwaves and all the surroundings of consumer domesticity. Some of the action was witnessed on Walkmans and small TVs.
