Motherland

Directed by Belinda Boyd
Submitted by Orlando Shakespeare Theater (Core Member)

A self-made woman does her crafty best to protect her wayward children, keep her food truck business thriving, and impart some kind of moral code in an inner city battling collapse. But in the War on Poverty it turns out the enemy is hard to identify, and objectives are even murkier. In Motherland grit, guile, and guns are everyday parenting tools, and hope comes at a cost. A funny, raw, timely new play inspired by Mother Courage and Her Children.
