LAUDED FOR ITS FINE CHARACTERISATIONS AND SHARP-EDGED HUMOUR, THE TIMELESS AUSTRALIAN COMEDY THAT SPAWNED A STAGE SHOW

Starring Australian favourites Ruth Cracknell and Garry McDonald, Mother and Son is a classic Australian comedy about the relationship between divorced Arthur and his ageing, very eccentric mother, Maggie. Torn between his social conscience that dictates he should look after his mother in her old age and his need to lead a normal existence while still in the prime of his life, Arthur tries to accommodate his mother’s constant demands for affection and attention. Vague but vicious and more arsenic than old lace, Maggie would have the beleaguered Arthur tied to her apron strings…if she could just remember where she put the apron!
