Ann buys a red dress. Just for special occasions. For example, for the funeral of her husband who is still in good health.
A ruthless portrait of a woman in “transitional age”, that hypersensitive period of life, when her children have grown up and left and her husband prefers to return home as late as possible.
Loneliness becomes unbearable – one can go mad. There is no one to cook breakfast for… There is no need to escort the children to school...
Motherhood is a full time job, but it's over. She finds herself in a vacuum, the aftertaste of the past tastes awful. Emptiness causes hysterics and a sense of helplessness. She feels as if the ground were slipping from under her feet.
"Mother" is the first part of the duology "Mother", "Father" by the famous French writer Florian Zeller and the winner of the Moliere Prize.
