Sep 17, 2013 – Oct 27, 2013 in the Mainspace
Opened Wednesday, September 25, 2013

The Best brothers’ mother dies in a freak accident at Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade, crushed by a drunk drag queen. As they look to celebrate their mother, they wrestle with the most fundamental questions of love and family: who did Mom love more and who gets the dog?

A hit last summer at the Stratford Festival where it premiered, this bittersweet comedy sees Tarragon favourite Daniel MacIvor back on stage alongside John Beale, again directed by Dean Gabourie. MacIvor’s previous productions at Tarragon include Was Spring (2012), Communion (2010), A Beautiful View (2009), How It Works (2007) and Somewhere I Have Never Travelled (1988).
