On a hot and humid Friday afternoon in a Tulsa, Oklahoma welfare office, social worker Mary Hanson is planning a much-needed weekend break when she is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Luellen James, a young mother whose son has been removed by child welfare services. Luellen’s determination to win back her son leads to the ultimate test of professional boundaries between social worker and client. Premiering at the internationally renowned Humana Festival of New American Plays, this one-act play by award-winning American writer, Ara Watson, reflects on the contentious nature of the child welfare system and the emotional toll it takes on all involved. Starring Eva Frick as Mary Hanson and Payton Hogan as Luellen James. Directed by Louise Heesom.
