Mother & Son
Starring Julie McGregor and Christopher Truswell
A nostalgic and hilarious trip down loss of memory lane.
Geoffrey Atherden penned the first episodes of Mother & Son in 1984 creating an instant classic. Many years later he has done it again!
Julie McGregor and Christopher Truswell will take on the roles made famous by Ruth Cracknell and Garry McDonald in this nostalgic trip down “loss-of-memory lane”.
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.
This freshened version of the beloved Logie Award-winning show finds long-suffering second son Arthur Beare hoping for the chance to finally take his new flame Anita away on a little holiday.
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! His only chance for a break, however, involves recruiting help from his successful but selfish brother Robert — but the firstborn favourite has enough on his hands. The philandering dentist has been doing distinctly unhygienic things with his hygienist — and when his wife finds out, Arthur’s troubles double as Robert lands on the doorstep. It doesn’t help that manipulative Maggie is in fine form and sabotaging Arthur’s chances of romance at every turn.
