Written by Heather Morrison, this play is presented Sum Theatre as part of the Globe Theatre’s Shumiatcher Sandbox Series. The play opens Wednesday, and runs until June 11, with performances Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The central character in Thicker Than Water is a 29-year-old woman named Laura (played by Judy Wensel). As the play opens, she’s waiting in her apartment for a phone call. From there, additional characters appear representing three generations women, which puts Laura in a position of having to confront her mother’s past and her own future through a broader exploration of issues related to mental health, motherhood and the age-old question of nature vs. nurture.
Again, Thicker Than Water runs at the Globe Theatre Wednesday through Saturday from June 2-11 at 7:30 p.m. You can get ticket information here.
