AUDITION NOTICE: Mother and Son - Act1 Theatre

Title: Mother & Son

Presented By: ACT1 Theatre

Genre: Comedy/Drama

Synopsis: Written by Geoffrey Atherden, "Mother & Son" is one of the best Australian series ever made, now brought to the stage by ACT1 Theatre. "Mother & Son" centres on the relationship between Maggie, who is becoming more than a little forgetful, and her middle-aged son Arthur, who moves in with her when his father dies and never leaves.
