Whitefish Theatre Company presents "Our Mother's Brief Affair" (Black Curtain production)
Date: April 23, 2021 - April 24, 2021
Did She? Or Didn't She?
On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small. Says The New York Times, Our Mother’s Brief Affair is a “sort of everyday detective story”, illuminating “how little we know about the lives that impinge upon and shape our own.”
“Greenberg’s writing is elegant and keenly epigrammatic, and the identity he assigns to Anna’s lover at the end of Act I is a first-class punch line: a historical left hook…” —Time Out NY
