A child accused. A mother conflicted. Is love really unconditional?
December. Toronto. It’s cold.
Brenda, a single Jewish mother sends her youngest son, Jason, off to school. His elder brother remains asleep upstairs. This could be a day like any other, if older brother Matthew wasn't under house arrest.
Pursued by the media and tormented by guilt, Brenda tries to hold her family together as the world is set to tear them apart.
Mother of Him is produced by Jacob Thomas and Oliver Mackwood Productions in association with Park Theatre, and follows Oliver’s past Park Theatre hits, The Life I Lead, Pressure and Madame Rubinstein.
