Eve Theatre Company opens its sixth season with Our Mother’s Brief Affair, an unusual family detective story featuring razor sharp wit and extraordinary generational insight. Written by Richard Greenberg, who includes Assembled Parties, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Take Me Out among his credits, opens Thursday, November 2 and runs through Sunday, November 12 at the MeX Theatre in the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts at Sixth and Main Streets.
Our Mother’s Brief Affair introduces Anna who makes a shocking confession to her children as she faces death for the umpteenth time. While her children try to separate fact from fiction and Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of, the audience is treated to the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.
The play was commissioned and first produced by South Coast Repertory Theatre in 2009 and debuted in New York at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 2015 directed by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and featuring Linda Lavin as Anna. According to The New York Times, “Our Mother’s Brief Affair is the sort of everyday detective story in which the prolific Mr. Greenberg has long specialized. . .he juxtaposes a generational then and now to consider how little we know about the lives that impinge upon and shape our own. . .providing an uncannily perceptive portrait of colliding reminiscences.”
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Things My Mother Taught Me will be performed at the MeX Theater in the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
