Synopsis: An esteemed critic, Prudence “Pru” Payne is widely recognized as a wit, a scholar, and a public intellectual; her son Thomas lives in that shadow. But as her memory begins to fade, all her preconceived notions – about herself and, more importantly, others – also slip away. Written by Pulitzer Prize Nominee Steven Drukman, this ATC world premier is a remarkable, funny, and life-affirming story about the relationship between a mother and son.
