Martyn Hesford's drama about L S Lowry's obsessive relationship with his bed-ridden mother

Mrs Lowry and Son

Written by Martyn Hesford

Artist L. S. Lowry lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth. Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he is to her. This powerful drama imagines the impact this obsessive mother and son relationship had on the great artist.

Directed by Gary Brown

Produced by Charlotte Riches.
