The Screen Guide

Arthur Gbeme has moved back into his Western Sydney childhood home. As he tells it, he has “put his life on hold” to care for his mum, Maggie, but the truth is, there isn’t much to put on hold. A former nurse, Maggie used to be a firebrand – a renegade. But since the death of her husband, Maggie has been… a little off. A bold re-imagining of the Australian classic, ‘Mother & Son’ is a show about ageing, migrant upbringing, changing family roles, and caring for someone you love even when they’re driving you up the wall. It’s an unapologetically hilarious comedy about a “helpless old woman” who runs rings around her adult son.
