The Magnolia Tree by The Wolves Theatre


In the front yard of the family’s home stands a magnolia tree. It was Mum’s favourite. Three siblings have come together to choose a nursing home for their mother who has advanced Alzheimer’s but instead Jack, for unclear reasons, will attempt to talk his sisters into letting her go, tonight.

This ingenious script shocks and confounds. We’re privy to family secrets, fractured relationships and confessions. Personal boundaries are crossed leaving the three siblings with an impossible bind.

This gripping psychological thriller has two endings, and the audience vote for the one powerful end they want to see.
