What would you do if someone you loved could find no reason to go on living? This is Thelma Cates' dilemma. Her middle-aged daughter, Jessie, has had enough. An epileptic, unable to hold a job or drive a car, with a failed marriage and a drug-addicted son on the wrong side of the law, Jessie has decided to end her own life.

In this gripping and emotionally compelling drama, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1983, playwright Marsha Norma explores a parent's worst nightmare. A poignant, often humorous, and moving portrait of one complex mother-daughter relationship, 'Night, Mother presents compelling arguments for just how much control we do and should have over our own lives, and how our life choices affect those closest to us.
