It is Sabbath Night in the Church of the Piranha — a church created by 15-year-old Chris Penrose as a way to prove to his mother, Una, that he is an adult and capable of running his own life. When Una’s mother Marilyn arrives for a surprise visit, the Sabbath ceremony takes a backseat to the drama that arises as Chris argues his independence from Una while Una attempts to maintain the emotional and physical balance she has worked so hard to keep in spite of Marilyn’s constant criticism and Chris’s teenage angst.
This original work by Virginia Tech English professor Edward Falco is an intense character-driven piece that examines the relationship between parent and child as children strive to be independent from their mothers’ hold over them.
