KILLING MOM just made it onto
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.
“You must expand this into a full length play because clearly, the audience is hungering for more."
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!”
“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.”
“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.”
