An overnight camping trip forces four Georgia mothers to confront not just a freakish storm outside, but the equally volatile issues of racism, privilege and parenting inside in Janece Shaffer’s “Brownie Points.”
The play runs through May 27 at Lamb’s Players Theatre. Deborah Gilmour Smyth directs.
Each mother has brought an (unseen) daughter, but this play is about the moms. Karson St. John’s Type-A Allison, “retired” from her law practice to care for her disabled son, has organized the campout and is now busy micromanaging everything down to the marshmallow roasts.
