About Mother Road
Is blood truly thicker than water? In Octavio Solis’ "Mother Road" now playing at Arena Stage, they say family is supposed to be everything. When a family business comes under threat, two long lost relatives are forced to work to together to save their hard-earned legacy. The two take a ride through the Mother Road, traveling from California back to Oklahoma, all while forging an unlikely bond and coming to terms with their past. Inspired by John Steinbeck’s classic, "Grapes of Wrath," "Mother Road" forces the two to confront their ideas of family asking “What is the American Dream?” "Mother Road" is now playing through March 8.
