Andre's Mother

1990 NR

Terrence McNally's play (presented here as part of the "American Playhouse" series) centers on the AIDS-related death of a young man named Andre. In just over an hour's time, we see how Andre's mother (Sada Thompson) and his lover, Cal (Richard Thomas), come to terms with their grief both separately and together, and how they take the first difficult steps to move forward with their lives in the wake of the tragedy. Deborah Reinisch directs.
