Mother and Son

Tempo Theatre is proud to kick off its 50th anniversary season with the Australian classic comedy Mother and Son. It is a new and updated, stage version written by Geoffrey Atherden and based on his popular original and much loved ABC television series of the 1980s and 90s.

It centres around the relationship between Maggie - who is becoming more "forgetful" - and her younger son Arthur, who moved in when his father died, and never left. He finds a new girlfriend and plans to go on holiday with her. Will Maggie allow this to happen? Will the philandering older brother Robert step up to the plate to care for his mother?

Mother and Son opens at the Belconnen Community Theatre on the 24th May and runs until the 1st June.
