Terms of Endearment at the Copake Grange

The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present Terms Of Endearment by Dan Gordon.

Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in Dan Gordon’s adaption of Terms Of Endearment from the Oscar-winning screenplay by James L. Brooks and Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Larry McMurtry. Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma’s struggle with her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find the courage in each other? This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.

DATE/TIME:
Weekends February 15th through 24th, 2019
Fridays & Saturdays: 7:30pm
Sundays: 3pm

LOCATION:
The Copake Grange
