The Story:
The riveting story of Lee Harvey Oswald and his complex relationship with his overbearing mother Marguerite, Mama’s Boy follows Marguerite's reckless attempts to reunite her family, from Lee's return to the U.S. from Russia, through the assassination of Kennedy, to her son's own murder and her defense of his innocence in the months that follow. A fascinating examination of family dynamics and obsessive maternal devotion played out in the shadow of history. 

Characters:
MARINA OSWALD - Early twenties. A stranger in a strange land, her personality and confidence emerge gradually. She’s learned to rely on others to get what she wants, and craves material things. She can be fiery and opinionated, and her relationship with Lee is passionate and volatile. She speaks with a heavy Russian accent, which gradually softens. 

ROBERT OSWALD - Mid twenties. A Southern gentleman. He’s reticent, a hard worker, conservative and fair-minded. Long ago, he grew weary of his mother’s antics, and when the play begins, he can barely tolerate her, although as a Southern gentleman, he treats her kindly – as often as possible. Although he’s grown apart from Lee, he still has tender, kid brother feelings for him, and is protective of Marina. He speaks with a slight southern drawl. 

LEE HARVEY OSWALD - Early twenties. Not traditionally handsome like Robert. Lee is close to his mother, and shares many traits with her. He remains polite, even when she tests his patience. Lee is fond of his brother, but questions his values. He adores Marina, and wants to control the relationship, but Marina isn’t easily controlled. Lee is capable of rage, tenderness and vulnerability. He’s intelligent and secretive. He speaks with a slight southern accent.

The role of MARGUERITE OSWALD has been cast.
