February 27, 2018 (La Mesa) – Lamplighters Theatre in La Mesa will present ‘Night, Mother March 2-25. 'Night, Mother, Marsha Norman's explosive 1983 play, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Play.

The play centers around Jessie, a middle-aged, down-on-her-luck woman who moves back in with her mom. As mother and daughter spend a high-stakes evening together, the ensuing debate -- sometimes quiet, sometimes tempestuous -- ultimately gives rise to some of our deepest, most personal questions about how and why we value life. Because Jessie has decided that life is no longer worth living. And as she calmly announces and prepares for her own death, her mother will try anything to stop her.
