“What would you risk to save the life of someone you love?” FSU’s Theatre program presented Mother’s Bliss, Mother’s Woe by Kate Caffrey Nov.15 - 17, 2018. This full length drama, filled with magical realism is set in the First Ward (Irish Ghetto) of Buffalo, NY in 1871, but it is teaming with the conflicts many Americans struggle with today: women’s rights; immigration; friction between religion and science/medicine; the challenges faced by the mentally ill and the families who care for them; and what we will risk to save the life of someone we love.
