The Tesseract Theatre Company presents

Mama’s Boy
a new play by Rob Urbinati

Directed by Brad Schwartz

“Mama’s Boyis a gripping family drama that illuminates history by adding a touch of humanity.” – Portland Press Herald

The riveting story of Lee Harvey Oswald and his complex relationship with his overbearing mother Marguerite, Mama’s Boy follows Marguerite’s reckless attempts to reunite her family, from Lee’s return to the U.S. from Russia, through the assassination of Kennedy, to her son’s own murder and her defense of his innocence in the months that follow. A fascinating examination of family dynamics and obsessive maternal devotion played out in the shadow of history.

“a moving and compassionate portrait of lives regularly flattened out and simplified by history’s narrative.” – New Jersey Star Ledger

September 21 – 30, 2018

Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm
Sundays at 4pm
