News Philadelphia Theatre Company Finds Its Mothers and Sons Philadelphia Theatre Company will continue its 40th anniversary season with the Tony Award-nominated Terrence McNally play Mothers and Sons.

Directed by Wendy Goldberg, performances are scheduled for Feb. 6-March 8. Opening is Feb. 11.

The cast will comprise Hugh Kennedy, Emmy Award-winning actress Michael Learned, James Lloyd Reynolds, and Patrick Gibbons and Jacob D. Wilner in alternating performances.

In Mothers and Sons, press notes state, "a woman pays an unexpected visit to the apartment of her late son’s partner, Cal, who is now married to another man and has a young son.

This eloquent and moving play explores the very essence of family and forgiveness in a changing society."

“We are honored to include Terrence’s timely and compassionate play as part of our 40th Anniversary celebration. Within an extraordinary body of work, Mothers and Sons is, to me, one of his finest plays, managing to be simultaneously intimate and epic. He is a master playwright, writing at the height of his power,” said executive producing director Sara Garonzik in a statement.
