This play, written in 1981, debuted in 1983 at the American Repertory Theater, having stayed on stage for a year and earned Marsha Norman a Pulitzer Prize for theater. It is an intense and claustrophobic drama, reporting the night when a divorced woman suffering from epilepsy resolves to tell her mother that she will kill herself. The conversation between the two women, of latent suffering, revisits the past, waking up old ghosts and making revelations. It is admittedly a cathartic text, which wants to involve the spectator in the agony of this tragic pair that somewhere in the past has trod the path to the approaching fatality. In the American tradition of names like Tennessee Williams or Sam Shepard, Marsha Norman leads the dramatic focus in an impeccable way, leading us to want to constantly interrupt that conversation, and to ask questions, in short, to try to know also how to change the destiny.
