She’s back!! ‘Mother & Son’ reinvigorates a treasured Australian comedy icon with Atherden’s distinctive brand of acerbic wit, mixing together the sweet, the sharp, the savage and the sad in Maggie and Arthur’s complex, dysfunctional relationship.
Geoffrey Atherden penned the first TV episodes of Mother & Son in 1984 creating an instant classic and award-winning TV series, and 36 years later he revisits his famous characters for the stage, this time Julie McGregor and Christopher Truswell taking on the roles made famous by Ruth Cracknell and Garry McDonald in this nostalgic trip down “loss-of-memory lane”.
This freshened version of the beloved Logie Award-winning show finds long-suffering second son Arthur at his wit’s end and desperate for some time away with his new girlfriend. But who will look after Maggie? Whilst Arthur’s dentist brother Robert and his wife Liz claim they’d love to help, Liz has bigger fish to fry!
Is Robert having an affair with his hygienist? Will Arthur get away to pop the question? Will Maggie go on a trip of her own? Vague but vicious and more arsenic than old lace, Maggie would have Arthur tied to her apron strings for life if she could just remember where she put that apron!
