Mother Hicks
Mother Hicks
AATE Distinguished Play Award Winner

ASSITEJ/USA Outstanding Plays Award Winner
Drama. By Suzan Zeder.

Cast: 4 to 5m., 4w. with doubling. Mother Hicks is an evocative story, richly realized through all of the resources of theatre including poetry, character and story. The setting includes various locations in and around Ware, Illinois, in the late spring of 1935 during the Great Depression. This play is about three outsiders—a foundling girl known only as Girl; a deaf boy, eloquent in the language of his silence; and an eccentric recluse, Mother Hicks, who is suspected of being a witch. The tale, told with poetry and sign language, chronicles the journeys of these three to find themselves, and each other, in a troubled time. Open stage with several areas suggested. American Midwest costumes from 1935. Approximate running time: 2 hours.

Notes
If producing the the Ware trilogy, the playwright recommends the plays be presented in this order: Mother Hicks, A Taste of Sunrise and The Edge of Peace.
