Synopsis:   Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in Dan Gordon's adaptation of Terms of Endearment, based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winner Larry McMurtry and James L. Brooks's screenplay of the Oscar-winning film. Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother, Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma's struggle in her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find courage in each other? This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.  

Roles:

Aurora Greenway: Female, 40+
Aurora is the mother of Emma with whom she has a very complex yet caring 
relationship. She is an intelligent, fastidious, witty, and straightforward woman who
is passionate about life and has distinct ideas about how it should be lived. She is often
stoic, but has moments in which her emotions overcome her. Aurora's self-absorption 
and controlling nature are equal parts frustrating, endearing, and hilarious.

Emma (Greenway) Horton: Female , 18+
Emma is a realistic and spirited young woman who sees the good in life and in 
others. She is her mother's equal in her passion for life and candidness, yet she 
possesses a forgiving nature and a wonderful, yet sometimes crasss sense of humor.

Garrett Breedlove: Male, 40+
Garrett, Aurora's next door neighbor, is a retired astronaut. He's a hard drinking
philanderer who clings to his glory days and the prestige of his former career to peak 
the interest of women. Though he can be crude, his charm and strength of character 
are undeniable.

Flap Horton: Male , 18+
Flap, Emma's high school sweetheart turned inattentive husband, is an educated 
bibliophile who wants nothing more than to be as far away as possible from Aurora's 
meddling and disapproval.

Patsy Clark: Female, 18+
Pasty is Emma's smart, loyal, straightforward, and compassionate best friend.
Emma is her "touchstone".
