'night, Mother opened on Broadway in March 1983
Directed by Tom Moore

Starring Anne Pitoniak and Kathy Bates

Marsha Norman was awarded the 1983 Pulitzer Prize,
Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Hull-Warriner, and Drama Desk Awards for 'night, Mother, which received its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in December 1982.

"...Miss Norman...takes two barren lives and...serves them up in a dramatic format that seems as inexorable as classic tragedy."
