The May edition of Broadway Brunch will feature scenes from ‘Night, Mother, a 1983 Pulitzer Prize winning play that was turned into a movie. The event includes brunch and is FREE and open to the public. If you can, please RSVP through Eventbrite, to help the organizers plan.
Broadway Brunch takes place on Sunday, May 19th, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Grace United Methodist Church (485 Ponce de Leon Ave. in Atlanta), in the Fellowship Hall.
The organizers have supplied the following synopsis:
In isolation, Jessie lives with her mother, Thelma, who does not take seriously Jessie’s intention to end her own life. Thelma finally realizes that Jessie is serious, and tries to convince her daughter to live. Join us as we honor both Mental Health Awareness Month and Mother’s Day with scenes from Marsha Norman’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Night, Mother.”
About the venue
Broadway Brunch is Grace United Methodist’s own version of dinner theater. It was devised as a creative approach to connecting the community around food, the arts, and a cause.
The events take place on the third Sunday of each month, and will feature some of Atlanta’s most talented artists — directors, actors, and playwrights. It will also give visitors a taste of how some great Atlanta’s restaurants do brunch.
While the event is free, you may make a donation to support the arts at Grace. There is a donation button at the top of the church’s Facebook page, and you’ll also have a chance to donate at the event.
