New Hope, PA (5/8/13) Bucks County Playhouse (BCP) (Jed Bernstein, Producing Director) has announced new casting for the world premiere of Mothers and Sons, a new play by four-time Tony Award®-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Ragtime, Master Class, Kiss of the Spider Woman). Last seen at Bucks County in Love Letters opposite James Earl Jones, Emmy and Tony Award®-winner Tyne Daly (Broadway’s Gypsy, Master Class, TV’s Cagney and Lacy) is set to star in the production joined by Tony Award®-nominees Manoel Felciano (Broadway’s Sweeney Todd, Brooklyn, TV’s All My Children) and Bobby Steggert (Broadway’s  Ragtime, 110 In the Shade) with direction by Tony Award®-nominee Sheryl Kaller (Broadway’s Next Fall, BCP’s  Barefoot in the Park).

“The Bucks County Playhouse has a history of bringing in top-class theater artists, and we are proud to be adding Terrence McNally to that roster,” said Jed Bernstein. “We are also thrilled to have the talented Tyne Daly returning to our stage in the world premiere of a play from one of Broadway’s leading playwrights.”

Mothers and Sons is the story of the mother of a young man who died from AIDS and his partner at the time of her son’s death. In the many years since they last met, both their lives have changed — more than either of them could have possibly imagined. This new play asks us to consider how far we have come as a society in need of healing and how far we still have to go.

The creative team includes set designer Wilson Chin (Broadway’s Next Fall, Fela), Tony Award winning costume designer Jess Goldstein (Broadway’s The Rivals, Enchanted April), lighting designer Travis McHale (Broadway’s The Heiress, The Lyons), and sound designer, Tony nominee John Gromada (Broadway’s The Trip to Bountiful, Clybourne Park).

Performances begin June 13th and run through June 23rd.
