It has been twenty years since Cal and Katharine have spoken to each other. Cal loved Katharine's son Andre and was with him when he died of AIDS, while Katharine could not accept Andre's homosexuality — or Cal's. After the death of her own husband, she's driven by grief to find Cal just to be close to some memory of Andre. But Cal has a husband and a young son now, while Katharine has nothing. Terrence McNally's play Mothers and Sons is about a disapproving mother and the man she once blamed for her son's death coming to grips with loss, regret and the passage of time. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis opens its Studio Series with Mothers and Sons. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (October 28 to November 13) at the Emerson Studio Theatre in the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $43.50 to $67.50.
