A New Play by Melissa Borgerding | Directed by James A. Goins | Produced by Stephen R. Rourke
When an older son and his pregnant wife have to confront their aging mother/mother-in-law about bringing her home to essentially die, they learn more about her
than they bargained for. “Someone Close to You” poses questions about the obligations we owe to our parents as they advance through life and when their freedom to live is usurped for our peace of mind.
