A child accused. A mother conflicted. Is love really unconditional?

December. Toronto. It’s cold. Brenda, a single Jewish mother sends her youngest son, Jason, off to school. His elder brother remains asleep upstairs. This could be a day like any other, if older brother Matthew wasn’t under house arrest.

Pursued by the media and tormented by guilt, Brenda tries to hold her family together as the world is set to tear them apart.

Mother of Him is directed by Max Lindsay, with designs by Lee Newby, lighting by Ali Hunter and sound by Fergus O’Hare.
