A Science Thing

Recommended by

    It's "adult" of us to know who we are and if we would be the best thing for our kid and some parents are either not ready for parenthood, or simply feel that other things are more important to do than raise their child. This is a touching and heartbreaking tale of a mother who has come back wanting to get to know her kid as an adult, hoping that a little of the science of their connectivity bridges all the time that's been lost to them both and heal the heart of both if just a little.

    A small slice of life play where an adult son meets up with his estranged mother he has not seen since he was six years old. The play is at times funny and at times sad, but the emotion that comes through the most is one of hope. One is left yearning to see scene 2.

    A beautiful reunion between a mother and son, where we're hoping and praying with them that their common passion can somehow help heal them. Wonderful work!
