About the event

Highlands Theatre Group presents Mother & Son theatre production based on the TV hit series, with matinee & evening shows at Moss Vale Services Club.

Newly divorced Arthur Beare moves back home to care for his aging mother Maggie. Though the long widowed woman appears to be losing her memory, she manipulates this condition to clever advantage. More often than not, Arthur’s plans to escape or enjoy some time alone are frustrated and trumped by her constant scheming and his caddish older brothers Robert’s tricks.

Mother and Son was a hit TV series for the ABC between 1984 and 1994, starring well known Australian Actors Ruth Cracknell (Maggie) and Garry McDonald (Arthur). Several other well known Australian Actors also had guest roles during the series run.

The original creator, Geoffrey Atherden, has adapted the TV series for the stage, with the premiere occurring at the Comedy Theatre, Melbourne on 18th July 2014. A professional touring season has just been completed.
