Upcoming Vol State Play Explores The Relationship Between Mother and Daughter

The Vol State Theatre explores the relationship between mother and daughter in their upcoming performance, A Daughter’s A Daughter by Agatha Christie. The play is a three-act psychological drama about mother Ann Prentice and her daughter, Sarah Prentice.

“‘A Daughter's A Daughter’ explores a mother-daughter relationship in which each is highly opinionated and dependent on one another,” said Assistant Director Brendan Tramel. The play, which was written under Agatha Christie's pseudonym, Mary Westmacott, is divided into three acts. Each act represents a different level in Ann and Sarah’s relationship. “Though the show itself is set post War World II in late 1940s London, the issues the characters face still resound today,” said Brendan.

“I believe people should come see this play because it really speaks to the relationships we all have with our parents versus our parents' relationships to us,” said Audrianna Fizer, who plays Ann Prentice. “It really speaks to the vulnerabilities that have always existed between mothers and their children throughout the times.”

“I think people will walk away from this show with a newfound love for Agatha Christie and how realistic the show is,” said Kyra Siciliano, who plays Sarah Prentice. “And it’s definitely going to make everyone want to go hug their moms.”

The show is happening on April 1st, 2nd, 8th, and 9th at 7:30pm in the Caudill Hall Auditorium on the Gallatin campus. The show is also happening on April 3rd and 10th at 2:30pm at the same place. The show is open to the public. Tickets are $5 at the door (cash only), and Vol State students can attend for free with their student ID. The show is directed by Edmon Thomas and assistant directed by Brendan Tramel. The play features adult themes and is recommended for a PG-13 audience. Viewer discretion is advised.
