Members of JQ Baltimore, an organization that works to make Baltimore a welcoming community for Jewish LGBT people, will attend the opening night of the solo play “Mother/Son” on Aug. 14.
Making its Baltimore premiere and running from Aug. 14-17, “Mother/Son” will be performed at the Theatre Project, 45 West Preston St., in Baltimore. Jeffrey Solomon’s play is about a Jewish mother and son navigating the coming out journey.
JQ Baltimore will host a pre-show wine and cheese reception ($5 donation suggested) at 7 p.m. followed by the performance at 8 p.m. Following the show there will be a Q&A with Solomon and area rabbis about the topic of LGBTQ inclusion in the Jewish community.
A special discount price of $12 (normal ticket price $22) is offered to JQ Baltimore affiliates that evening. To order tickets, visit theatreproject.org.
Solomon’s award-winning solo play was inspired by his mother’s poignant journey out of the closet as the parent of a gay son, within the context of a tightly knit Jewish community.
