KILLING MOM just made it onto 

                                 LIST 2020


A Poignant Comedy

Written by Megan Smith-Harris 

Directed by Jessica Jennings

Think of all the times you’ve argued with your mother and thought, 

I could just kill her!"

What if one day, she asked you to do exactly that?

(But told you not to tell your two sisters...)

KILLING MOM is a fast-paced and moving  story that tackles the issues that perplex us all:  family dysfunction, aging, mortality,

and the eternal quest to be the most favorite child.

EARLY Praise

“You must expand this into a full length play because clearly, the audience is hungering for more."

Terrence McNally

Multiple Tony Award-Winning Playwright


*NOTE After winning First Prize in

The Bijou Theatre One-Act Play Competition,

 judged by Terrence McNally,

playwright Megan Smith-Harris took his advice and expanded

KILLING MOM into a full length play.

“I loved this play! So touching and such a gift Megan Smith-Harris  has to be able to take such a heady and controversial subject and make us laugh while making us think. KILLING MOM should be on Broadway!”

Susan Maurer


“KILLING MOM is a beautiful, moving, and genuinely funny play. The complexity of the characters and subject matter are revealed with an authentic voice. We find ourselves laughing and then crying all within a page of dialogue.”

Tim Howard

Theatre Director

“That family is my family—the one I grew up in and spent summers on the Vineyard. It was pitch perfect. I think KILLING MOM is what all plays should be—a non-stop ride. It makes big points with zero preaching.”
