The Mother


Anne Bancroft and Joan Cusack star in a revival of Paddy Chayefsky's classic 1954 television play set in 1954 New York. The mother is recently widowed and is determined to find a job. A garment factory takes her on, despite the fact that she has not worked for 38 years. However, lack of skill is not the only obstacle to independence - her daughter wants her to stay at home.
