Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in Dan Gordon's adaptation of Terms of Endearment, based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winner Larry McMurtry and James L. Brooks's screenplay of the Oscar-winning film. Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother, Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma's struggle in her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find courage in each other? This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.

Orbiting between the present and memory, “The Spare Room” focuses on the lives of two men in a loving, long term relationship after a singular moment changes the trajectory of both their lives forever. Exploring themes such as sacrifice, responsibility, and ultimately the limits of unconditional love, this play begs the audience to look within themselves and ask, “What would I do?”
