Launching a new series of second-stage productions, the Alliance Theatre Lab has brought a new production of 'night, Mother to Barry University's intimate Pelican Theatre. The play marks the professional directing debut of David Sirois, a multitalented New World School of the Arts grad who is also Alliance's resident playwright and the guy who wrote last season's smash Brothers Beckett. His staging of 'night, Mother is sure and clear, so directing is obviously one more thing in his dramatic toolkit. Sirois is also very fortunate to have the inventive, fascinating Sally Bondi in the role of Mama. As full of life as her daughter is deadened, Bondi's Thelma Cates is a woman of ever-changing emotional colors. She's honest, critical, scared, furious, loving, desperate, manipulative – well, the list goes on and on, as Bondi creates a thoroughly believable country gal who accepts the cards life has dealt her.
Mother and daughter Jessie (played by Aubrey Shavonn Kessler) are about to spend a mundane evening together like any other in their small home in their small town, when Jessie, epileptic, divorcee, and mother of a dope fiend criminal, casually interjects that she plans to kill herself with her dead father's gun in a matter of hours. The rest of the play is a dialogue between the two actresses, a kind of unfair cat and mouse, where the mouse cheats the game by never sticking more than nose and whiskers out of its cavernous hole in the wall.

It is about incest — incest presented with such gushing gusto it could make V. C. Andrews blush. And if the Alliance Theatre Lab didn't exist, South Florida audiences probably would never get to see it.

Wendy MacLeod's play, The House of Yes, spawned a successful movie in 1997 and it's easy to see why at the Alliance Theatre Lab's current production of the show. It's a bright, vicious and ultimately tragic ninety minutes, teetering on the edge of cartoon land but with Adalberto Acevedo's direction never crossing over. Adalberto Acevedo and stage manager Amy Spadafore designed the realistic set with Will Cabrera and Howard Ferre providing the very professional lighting and sound design/original music.

Its a gutsy production for any Company to generate, but this one – with a topnotch cast, superb direction and creative energy – is a minor milestone.  Any play – especially one  steeped in cutting edge taboos such as incest amidst a cartoon-like dysfunctional family – is assuredly one which will evoke after-the-curtain-falls discussion.  It is especially notable when Director Acevedo  presents this unique play in a predominately black set, with 18 surrealistic empty  frames as a backdrop for  the twisted characters in this unique theatrical presentation.
